We all have our tolerance levels; I tend to be able to cope with
hundreds of e-mails per day. If you get the feel for a list, you can
tell how sensible an e-mail is by just looking at the subject and one or
two lines of it.

The steps are reasonably simple:

1) Make said policy decision
2) Contact busmgr at auug.org.au
3) Do the following pseudo-code:

while (shift @members) {
	unless ($_ isa auug_member) {

You'd probably want to be a little more friendly but it's not impossible
as you seem to suggest...
