I have been dismayed to see the fighting that has happened over the last few months.  
Do we not have a method by which we can remove a member ("ban") similar to declaring a person's submissions to be spam?  I routinely do this for the Viagra or Cialis solicitations (although I must admit I was amused by one company offering "soft" versions of these products - why??)

I'm not sure the screening will work - someone can log in and later become a pain in the neck.  The solution is to give them one or  two  warnings about inappropriate mail and then BOOM!

Dear Listers,

My apologies for allowing the tenor of the list to degrade.  We have now 
made a change to see if we can stop this from happening again.  For 
those currently on the list the change will not affect you other than 
you will possibly experience an improved tenor.  New subscribers will 
have to go through a screening process that will add time, hopefully 
less than a day, before they can subscribe. The screening process is 
designed to keep some, hopefully very few, people out.

Thank you all for your patience while we cleared this mess up. Let us 
hope things revert to normal where the worst we should expect is a 
scolding from Nick.

Keep on listing!

m.p.
