I must echo Daniel's complaint. I have also received 2-3 spams per day
for the last couple of days from an account at AOL telling me "HI I want
to meet you I'm a model...". They all were forwarded via the firewalls
mailing list. You'd think the firewalls list would have some spam
protection... :) Or at least refuse to forward messages to the list
that come from non-subscribers. I presume this person spams mailing
lists, and lets the list manager do the leg work getting it to multiple
recipients. Not good.
