Spam on the mailing list

Why do we get intermittent spam on ruby-talk? Maybe the mailing list
software should be configured to prevent people who aren’t subscribed to
the list from posting to it.

Rafael,
the mailing list is actually a gateway to/from the ruby usenet news group
… this makes the intermittent spam awfully difficult to trap. It’s a
recurring problem that Dave is handling admirably well.

Well, the “Business Proposal” posts seem to originate from email not from the
newsgroup. I could be terribly wrong, which is common.

To call me “awesome” is an understatement.
