Blacklist IAC and related keywords?
It would be worth sharing a blacklist set of regex matches across all
interested lists, which would save moderators a bit of time. I know
that these spammers have attacked this list, wikimedia-l, gendergap
and probably several other lists. The intention seems to be just to
cause disruption and target individual Wikimedians for malicious
cyberbullying. It is a shame if we end up locking down so many lists
against open sign-ups, even if approving new joiners is not *that*
much work for a moderator.
