Perhaps you are not providing the kind of spam prevention for your SWMBO
that we are for the list. It's fairly robust and dynamic.

Whilst significantly increasing the volunteer effort to administer the list,
and confuse lots of people, reducing the quality and accessibility of the
list. We could solve those problems by turning the server off, too.

If we were censoring comments about SPAM, do you think this thread would
have reached the list? We simply recommend that people resist the temptation
to reply to spam on the list (which is fruitless, annoying, and just makes
the problem worse) instead of approaching the list admins or the committee.
If you feel like replying to this mail, please respect the reply-to. I'm not
going to post to this thread on slug@ again.
