Good question. It would be very interesting to find out some info on
distribution around the world...

I posted my original message with the hope of stimulating discussion on
the topic of how to make this list even better. I agree that it is pretty
cool already, but improvements are always welcome as long as everyone
agrees it's an improvement -- this is why im happy to hear a discussion
on my ideas.
Another possible idea could be a slight change in the listserver itself.
If it could prefix all bounced messages with a simple "AJ:" or something,
then no posters have to follow any individual rules or any shit like
that. I know little about how listservers work, but someone else on this
list might.
