To be honest, not many ... 50% of what I have to moderate are plain and
simply spam (and that isn't an exaggeration, I wiped out something like
150 out of 350 messages the other day) ... maybe about 25% are duplicate
postings ... I'd say <1% are subscribe/unsubscribe ... and the rest are
mostly from ppl not subscribed to the lists at all ...

Let me disable the administrative stuff being blocked and we'll see if it
makes much of a difference in the way of 'false traffic' ...
