I run several mail servers and I have seen spam on the increase
lately. It sounds like spammers got around most filtering techniques
such as grey-listing and normal spam filtering through spam assassin.
My point is that it is just a bit too easy to blame it on the
technical skills of the people running the list, have you thought that
maybe, spammers are also getting cleverer in the way they are
distributing their junk ?
Even better, feel free to offer solutions.
