+1 to John.

Ignoring is superior to banning, IMHO. Not replying or not giving any
attention to spammers, flammers, is also a very effective way to get them
to quiet down. People need to learn to use filters, sorters, and all of the
wonderful tools sitting right there inside your browser/email viewer.

BUT, the owners of the list have decided, hence we should just abide.
