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
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.
