I've been a member of this group since before the first spam.
Mostly the arguments have been whether to disband the group
altogether because nobody ever uses it. So if we got rid of the
spammers, there would, in effect, be no traffic on the list. :)
Seriously though, there is so little traffic on this list that i
would be willing to be a "moderator" or even "owner" if nobody else
wants to do it. This would obviously be a low priority and so i
might not get to releasing a valid e-mail (if there is one) for some
days (if on vacation, etc.).
Another possibility is to make it so that only members may post.
Is this a mailman list?
If this is acceptable to the group, i will take on the
responsibility. Although, for security reasons, i would appreciate
it if there was, at least, one backup moderator. I've seen too many
lists that are out of control because the owner/moderator vanished.
