[rescue] spam

Looks like a spammer trolled the archives for addresses.  While
addresses may not appear in the headers, Mine, and Mike's are definately
findable in google in the list archives from either sigs or links.


Maybe a username/password should be setup for the archive ???

If it gets bad enough, I'll change my address on my server and
with the list.... 

The real sad part of spam.... if it didn't work, it wouldn't go on.
The fact that Joe Six Pack is dumb enough to respond to spam is
what helps keep it going.
