We can't necessarily prevent people from usenet from posting lame
questions, but we could at least consider having an 'info' field on

majordomo@vger. I remember subscribing, and seeing 'No info for
linux-kernel'.

How hard is this to implement? A simple message describing the
acceptable
content would seem to be a prudent first step.

IMHO, the info field should also include the names of other semi-related
mailing
lists for specific topics so that people don't end up asking SMP
questions on the wrong list etc....
