One additional limit that CopyEdit-L has is that new subscribers have their first half dozen or so messages reviewed before they are posted. After the first X postings, their postings then go straight to the list.

Might a similar idea work here? This might cut down on the people who subscribe and start posting jobs, or post a question that generates 15 responses all saying "use google" "look in the archives" "read the rules" etc.
