Since the list is backed by Mailman, there is a less extreme option:
restrict posting to subscribed email addresses. This won't prevent all
spam, but will cut down a lot. People will still have a harder time
emailing the list, but it'd be even harder with a moderated list, so
restricting to subscribed addresses may be a reasonable compromise.
