We do have filters in place and they are constantly improved.
They never can be perfect.

To use moderator for this list would have the downsides
that the discussion would be slowed down considerably 
until we find _many_ volenteers because it is more effort.

So we have to decide between the two negative side effects.
With the current filters in place I think that just throwing away
the occasional spam works fine. If the spam rate raises more
we need to think about more options.

I really don't like spam.
Please help efforts like

to do something against spam on a more general level.
