I posted a patch to Majordomo-Workers this morning that lets you specify,
on a per-list basis as part of the list.config file, sets of "taboo"
regular expressions (one set for the headers of a message, and another for
the body). If the message matches any of the "taboo" regexps, it is
bounced the list owner for evaluation and potential approval.
I'm going to let the folks on Majordomo-Workers play with the patch for a
few days, then if/when it seems stable, I'll send it to Majordomo-Users and
put it on FTP.GreatCircle.COM.
