I'm also curious.  The level of spam has made list moderation essentially
meaningless.  I cannot possibly look at each moderated message as a
potential genuine contribution, so I just delete them and let them time out
of the list folder.

Some spam filtering is important for RT as well, where I spend way too much
time deleting spam.

If OLPC can't maintain some basic infrastructure supoort, I need to know
for my own decision-making.  For instance, I might choose to move the L10n
list to SugarLabs instead, and I may or may not continue contributing my
time to RT cleaning if I'm just cleaning because a decision was made that
my time is less valuable than some admin time to set up spam filtering.
