Actually, I'd be inclined to agree with you, though I have been one of the
offenders. The (anti-)spam discussions have grown to be an unfeasibly large
portion of ILUG mail especially in the last week or so.
To combat this, I've set up a Mailman mailing list (antispam at tech-mad.org) to which anybody who wishes to can subscribe. Archives of course available to members only, and e-mail addresses in the archive obfuscated. Go to spam.tech-mad.org for the link.
