You might want to take note of our decision ~18 months ago
to moderate bionet.photosynthesis. I started off opposed to 
moderation, but relented because I couldn't provide an alternative 
to other subscriber who were NOT prepared to accept the level of junk 
postings.

IMO opinion, we did a good 
job of drawing up a revised charter which made the moderation 
policy clear - archived at:- 
 http://www.bio.net/hypermail/PHOTOSYNTHESIS/9511/0003.html

Basically, we said that the policy would be to reject obvious
spams and blatant violations of the "no ADS" principle. We also 
said that moderation policy would be very liberal. I am not the 
moderator, but as far as I know, his decisions have all been 
accepted without argument.

BTW BIOSCI rules are that you must put the revised charter to a vote.
In a disciplined readership like this one, there shouldn't be a problem.
