If you're going to run a list where people talk about spam, and use
real-world examples, then you can't do spam filtering on that list --
tools like SpamAssassin just aren't intelligent enough to tell the
difference between a real spam message and someone having a
legitimate meta discussion regarding some spam message.

For what Gadi is doing, none of the above is relevant.

Again, you need to understand more about the level at which Gadi is
operating. See my other message to Patrick about this.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006. If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
