Re: Testing list changes.
Not really. My "official" address is firstname.lastname@example.org but that isn't my
ISP. It's a forwarder. That way I can shift ISPs without having to fix
e-mail subsriptions all the time. However there is *no* way I can
really post from pobox because that is just a forwarder.
However something *has* to be done. Half of the spam I receive is now
coming from this list. I've about had it. The fact is that this list
is going to die if something isn't done.
