There is a way to moderate groups so that you have a human moderator who
passes or deletes the first message from an address, then lets the 'bot
know that a particular address is OK (or not), so all posts from that
address will be accepted (or deleted, if need be).  

The other way is to repeat the experience of asr and self-moderate . . . ;-)
