With respect though, this doesn't address the problem that is being pointed
out here. All our addresses (or at least those of people who post) are
contained in an easily downloadable, relatively easily parseable set of
files. So we're all open to being personally spammed, which I'm more
concerned about than spam to ilug at linux.ie .
Is it not possible to remove these email addresses, at worst with sed or
more preferably - as I don't particularly want to add to Colm's job - with
It seems like a fairly obvious and simple requirement of Mailman.
