I wade through about 20 gated messages a day in the mpl administrative
interface. 90% are spam, the remainder are legitimate. Most spammers just
post to the list without bothering to subscribe, so we catch most of them
in the administrative interface. Apparently "debl" either subscribed or
hijacked the account of a subscriber. I think we get no more than a few
spams a year, so we aren't doing too badly. The vacation auto-responders
are getting to be an annoyance though -- any of you who use them please
configure them not to respond to mailing list traffic.
i unsubscripted debl, our most recent spammer, so we'll see how that works.
