@Mehul can you please share the filters here for the benefit of all
(some of us administer mailman).

To the PLUG list owners and policy setters:
I did not realize that other members (non spammers) were under
moderation on this list until I commented on it earlier today.  I
suggest that PLUG implement filters like those put in place by
ILUG-Mumbai and ILUG-Chennai.  I guess ILUG-Delhi also has similar
filters in place as there is not much spam there as well.  To the best
of my knowledge, all three lists are unmoderated; the few members who
do not respect the list rules are taken care of by the members at
large.  For a few bad apples please do not have rules that catch legit
messages; puts them in the moderation queue and to add salt to injury
allows spams (e.g. invitations) to the list.

My 10 paise.
