Writing as list owner,

  Yes its easy.  No, I don't want to be bothered with more than the rare 
circumstance, and no I don't want the list to be subjected to the
noise while I notice and handle the offender.  I am not able to
monitor the list as closely as I used to.  I need systems that will
remain effective even with a more hands-off approach.
