Greetings.

Can anyone explain to me why this spam E-mail made it to the list?
I see a lot of spam being sent to this list, but in this particular case,
one of the mailing lists I run also received the same identical message..
which I find odd.

Did they intentionally target mailman powered lists?  I find it more odd
that for both mailman-developers and my list, subscription/confirmation is
required, but I find no trace of any addresses with the header domains or
From: address, which would indicate to me there is some way around the
subscription process, or that they came up with a scheme to go through
the sub/confirm and then unsubscribe.  Seems like a lot of trouble just to
send spam though...

Am I missing something here?
