In short:  not anytime soon.

(For inn-workers, I believe posting is restricted to list members, which 
avoids the problem.  But that's not reasonable for inn-bugs.  And other 
solutions, like a spam filter, or having non-member posts trapped for a 
moderator, require software changes at ISC which are unlikely to happen 
with any speed.)
