The debian lists have mail filter administrators more adept than many of
the users of debian lists will ever be.

I notice that your posts tend to come in batches where you reply to what
to daily readers of debian-user would appear to be threads that have
been dead for a few days.  Perhaps by the time the DU mail gets to you,
the spam storm has been fixed and you never receive it.

Or, perhaps your mail filters are better than debian-user's.  If so,
perhaps you could provide some guidance to the debian lists mail filter

I don't have a mail filter.  I only get about 2 spams per week other
than what comes from debian-user; I get many a day from DU.
