I second the move to categorize subject areas.  However, IMHO
this may be better:

On the seaoc listserver, instead of having just seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org,
is it possible to have several mailing lists? e.g.
seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org
seaoc-wood(--nospam--at)seaoc.org
seaoc-concrete(--nospam--at)seaoc.org
seaoc-inspection(--nospam--at)seaoc.org
seaoc-ethics(--nospam--at)seaoc.org
seaoc-computer(--nospam--at)seaoc.org

This means that every user would have to subscribe specifically to
the particular subject mailing list which he/she is interested in.  
e.g.  In the 1st line of the message

subscribe seaoc-wood(--nospam--at)seaoc.org

Filtering is still possible based on the From: line, by the user.

Just my 2 cents
Cheers,
  Andrew
