I have just made one change in policy on sbcl-devel and sbcl-help:
posts from nonsubscribers are now disabled in hopes of reducing spam.
I also noticed an option for another change that I might make: perhaps
the size cutoff for postings should be more than 40kB? My impression
(as the person who belatedly approves them) is that 57kB posts on
sbcl-devel are usually appropriate things like patches. I am inclined
to bump the limit for sbcl-devel up to 80kB-100kB or so, and to bump
the limit for sbcl-commits up to something like 200kB. However, I'd
like to give subscribers a chance to comment on it first: if you like
to read sbcl-devel through your slow ham radio link from your sailboat
off the coast of Antarctica and don't want it to clog up your
connection, now's a good time to let me know.

People who send spam to Emperor Cartagia... vanish! _They say_ that there's
a room where he has their heads, lined up in a row on a desk... _They say_
that late at night, he goes there, and talks to them... _they say_ he asks
them, 'Now tell me again, how _do_ you make money fast?' -- Matthew B. Kennel
