Yes, I've just gotten an e-mail from Emil Briggs (Baymountain)
belonging to this problem. I've not known that the mailing-list is
mirrored to the newsgroup, I just wondered a little bit about the long
header of the spam-message. Scrutinizing it brings up the issued
problem. So, like Emil told me, every time they cut a spammer two
others pop up. 
For that reason: don't feed the trolls.

Ciao, Georg
