Not doing digests or archives on this list. I decided to moderate the list
to stop any resends, because the "Approved: password" line gets yanked
before sending. I assume this would do the same thing as the taboo_headers
or taboo_body would?

If the list is getting another header/footer, it is going through resend a
second time. Possibly a misconfigured digest setting? You might try to
add something like this to your list.config and/or list-digest.config;
taboo_headers << END
where owner-listname is the exact spelling of the sender setting in
the listname.config file, and bulk the setting used for precedence from
the same .config file. Since these headers are not added until it goes
through resend the first time, having them there on a second time through
will bounce the message instead of sending it back through the list again.
The /^Precedence: bulk/ filter also helps make sure your list is not a
subscriber to some other list. Even if it is, you just have to approve
the messages before they go into the list for distribution.
You could also use a taboo_body setting that has some unique word or
phrase from your footer, but this could also catch replies people send
where they quote the entire message without trimming the fat.
