Donncha just grepped his spam archive (why he archives spam is open to
question ... but he does) and the results since 1st Sept 2004 are as
Spam with [ILUG] in the header since 2004-09-01: 9
ILUG posts in same timeframe: Approx 1500
Spam percentage: 0.6%
Margin for error (donncha's finger might have slipped towards the D key
once or thrice) - we'll triple the spamcount and get 1.8% spam volume
Given the mailman filtering stops about 150/day I'd say we're getting
off rather lightly.
