[Mailman-Developers] Please Explain !!!
Tue, 17 Jul 2001 01:15:39 +0100
The reason that I know there is a connection, however tentative, is that
email@example.com is signed up on mailman-dev mailing list (i just
checked) and I'm now getting all his/her mail.
This is the only connection between me and him/her. I have never so much as
looked at anything on portal2.com or outblaze.com.
I admint it's bizzarre, but just check the subscribers list ?!?! It was
probably not the python.org servers that mixed it up (how could they), still
how in the hell did it happen?!?! Beats me.

I can guarantee there is no explicit connection between portal2 or
outblaze and either Mailman or python.org. I highly doubt there's any
implicit connection either, i.e. they aren't using Mailman. From the
Message-ID of the message you forwarded, I'd say it's a good guess
they're using Lyris <wink>.
It's also almost impossible that you got bombarded by someone
harvesting mailman-users because 1) there's no way they could have
done that in just a few minutes; 2) why didn't anybody else get
Mailman-Developers mailing list
