vim* lists uses google groups and moderation for new members and I almost never see spam there. Most likely though this is the result of the following combination:
1. Google anti-spam algorythms.
2. Requirement to have Google account to become a member (not necessary Google mail though).
3. Denied non-member posting.
4. Presence of pre-moderation for all members that write posts for the first time.
Fourth should be the most effective. I mean, has the least number of false negatives and positives (“positive” is “spam” marker), though only as long as you do not consider denying non-member posts as adding false positives.
