Nobody has addressed the more significant issue that while -devel is "out
there", -user is "out there and actively harvested for new email
addresses"  Quite probably nobody CAN address it really, but I consider
it a serious issue.  I don't have time to wade through the extra spam I
would get if I started posting things to -user.  If someone else already
does and gets this crap anyway, well...
