Well, hello!

Granted, it is mostly stupidity and ignorance of a user that something 
like this "error-mail-flooding" happens, but isn't it possible to use 
modern-day technology to aid in finding better control of those 
Is it possible to adjust the mailing-list software so that a user who 
obviously spams the list is blocked until he contacts a list admin? The 
trigger could be a number of x messages in a given amount of time. 
Let's say a sender lets 10 mails lose on the list within two minutes 
(hoping that noone here can type that fast) OR a sender sends ten 
messages with the same bodytext the block becomes active.
Any thoughts on such a solution in order to avoid 1200+ mails spamming 
every subscriber?
