I would like to thank Brian L Heess for his list of taboo_* entries,
which is something that I had asked for a month or so ago, only to be
bombarded with haughty explanations that it wasn't really necessary.
I do wish that people would remember that not all lists are run the same
way, and that restrict_post and other features are not always suitable.
For example, it is common for people to post conference announcements to
scientific lists to which they do not belong.
I am however curious as to whether long lists of taboo_* entries lead to
a performance hit. Any ideas? It would be nice if Mj supported include
files for the taboo entries, since it would make maintenance easier, and
one could sort them to remove duplicates which are likely to accumulate
