Spam emails in the mailing list

(Clinton Gormley) #1

Hi all

Recently we've had a number of spam emails sent to the mailing list, which
Google hasn't caught. We apologise for this, but we ask you to just ignore
them. As soon as we spot the ones that make it through Google's net, we
delete and ban the user.

Unfortunately, the only other option would be to send all new users' first
posts into a moderation queue before allowing them to post. With a list as
busy and responsive as this one, we think it would be detrimental to make
new users wait until somebody looks at the moderation queue.

Thanks for your understanding. Fortunately, the levels of spam are pretty
low and don't interfere too much with the group. If things get worse we
will revisit this policy.

many thanks
