The spam that went to this list only got through because there are no SPF 
checks on the list server.  The domain jamespurser.com.au has a SPF record 
with a -all entry so spam forging James' address would be stopped if we had 
SPF checks.

The spam that went to the luv-announce list went through because either Lev 
has his address approved for mail to go through without moderation or because 
a moderator mistakenly approved a spam message.  I'm trying to chase that up 
with the committee now.  In either case that problem will be fixed.

I think that new experiments in anti-spam measures are a good thing and I 
encourage your work in this regard.  But with regard to the current list spam 
problems I think it's best to solve it at the server end.  I will personally 
solve the LUV problem.  The problem with this list could be solved with a SPF 
check, we just need the LA council to discuss whether they should do SPF 
checks.  I encourage anyone who wants that to ask the council to discuss the 
matter at the next meeting.
