Re: [OT] Re: Spam because of this list

Well, I'm kind of bummed out about the whole thing now. Chris's point is 
correct that there are other places where debian-kde is archived and that 
getting everyone to change en masse would be difficult to do.

I don't have any faith in anti-spam legislation. There's no way laws can stop 
spam. It's like pornography, religions, drugs and guns. The more you try to 
regulate it, the less you'll succeed at stopping it. Spam is a problem 
created by technology that can only be solved by it.
