I do feel your pain.

Not so much a filter (okay it is :), but I have found using an NNTP
client with a score (aka killfile) particularly handy for dealing with
people who are unable to comprehend that 'wmii' != alt.politics

I suggest you have a look at GMANE and then killfile those muppets you
don't want to heard from.

I would normally side with you that *they* should not be subscribed to
the list in the first place and we should not carry the burden of
filtering their drivel. Alas the world is full of spam and as users of
the Internet we have to bear the cost :-/
