Just to mention a couple of things :-
The first is that postings to this list are only successful if the
poster's address is either on the list already or on a 'White List' of
kosher folk which is updated manually. This is why if you post to the
list for the first time you may notice a delay before your posting
arrives... I don't approve sp*mmers' addresses :-)
The second is that you can only do a 'who' to find the list
subscribers if you're actually one yourself, and subscription is
protected using Majordomo's confirmation mechanism - so you need to
send a token back to the list server to confirm that you'd like to
join the list in order to be added. I've been thinking about
disabling 'who' altogether for the lists I run here. Thoughts ?
Finally: if you posted to the list, your email address appears in the
WWW archive. I suspect this is where the sp*mmers got their address
from in this case.
