LSTOWN-L would have been the best choice for discussion and
I have cc: them.
 
It takes 3 things to acomplish your task via Revised LISTSERV
techology:
 
1) list-owner has setup the list's TOPICS feature in the
   definition (see example below)
 
2) you, the subscriber, have done a LISTSERV
 
   SET listname TOPICS: -FWD
 
   which only is effective for mail distributions, and not
   for DIGEST/INDEX mailings
 
3) the sender uses a valid Subject: in their posting
 
   SUBJECT: FWD: xxxxxxx
 
Here is an example syntax using HEPROC-L topics=
 
* Topics=          HEJ,Con1,Con2,Con3,Con4,Con5,Con6,Con7,Con8,Con9
 
Notice that there is nothing magical about FWD and is not a valid
explicit topic for this list (thus it would be treated as the
reserved OTHER: topic).
 
You might find other useful discussion on the TOPICS= keyword
