I don't see the point in ignoring spam and letting it linger.  It makes
the task so much harder if you ever go to the web form to check whatever
is there.  I find it easier to deal with those by just rejecting them on
sight.  There are some Mutt macros that I posted some time ago, and were
refined by David Fetter, that help with this.  Even if you don't use
Mutt, you can probably use the idea.

It was probably me that you remember saying it.  It's configurable, and
I don't know if our Majordomo installation uses it.
