Uh, no -- please don't.  Please see the archives for the background 
on this issue.

The list does require subscription, but the archives are public. 
IMO, people should be able to figure out for themselves that they 
will need to subscribe before posting.

But Barry is the one who has the final word on that subject.

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.
