Hello list,

I have seen another type of subscription form spam pop-up on our 
servers. It is particularly affecting one client that has 80 mailman 
lists and they wish to keep their lists publicly advertised. We keep 
seeing dozens of subscription spam coming in from gmail addresses PER 
MINUTE with the following format:

kihuotter+59233527 at gmail.com

We have implemented the form secret function that was introduced in 
Mailman 2.16 but it is having no effect on these particular subscription 

I remember seeing a solution from Mark Sapiro addressing this exact 
issue but I can't seem to find it again.

Help me Obi-Wan Sapiro. You are my only hope! (other suggestions would 
also be appreciated!)

Brian Carpenter
