I posted the previous 'bogus subscriber' lists, as my mailing lists seem
to be getting about 80% of the bogus subscriptions. Although the frequency
is not that high anymore, about 1 or 2 per day still come in. In a number
of cases, these are repeated addresses, to try to really hit the e-mail
address (suppose you just managed to signoff from 1000 lists, and 1000 new
subscriptions start to come in...). Here's the list of bogus ones I got
since May 15. The number in front counts the number of attacks:
