The trouble is that even if you did force everyone to resubscribe,
there's nothing stopping a spammer from doing so again.  Remember that
they're *receiving* messages from the list, but posting *directly* to
all the victims.  Any cretin can do that, and there's little a list
owner can do about that, unless they can figure out which subscriber is
the cretin, and that mayn't be possible.
