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.
