Was wondering if "what if it had been me".

Perhaps a softer first step is to automatically moderate a person who is
not following the mandate of the list? If spam comes from my e-mail
address - I'd be quite happy to be automatically moderated until I could
discover and remove the issue on my side, then would (on request) go
back to unmoderated. This would delay my valid posts - but - whatever,
lets protect the list.

Do I think attachments should be allowed: Yes. I also often take
(partial) screen shots and include that in e-mails - if its relevant.
Means HTML rather than raw text as well.
On all lists: I only read/follow a few ARIN lists - but see no great
harm in attachments. A picture can explain a thousand words.

Regarding the "porn" - just got back from Afrika Burn (our local Burning
Man), and well... still not relevant content for this list though.
