Once again we had a spam wave because of a failing spam filter :-( .
Fortunately this list didn't suffer from it but this was pure luck.
In order to protect the discussion lists from more spam I now will
follow the recommendations from a number of people suggesting to close
the discussion lists for non-members. I.e. mails from members go
through immediately while other mail reaches me as bounces which I may
approve by hand then.
Personally I regret this step because in fact spammers make a piece of
openness impossible, which through all these years were important to
me. On the other hand mails from non-members are extremely rare anyway
and insofar in practice nothing much is lost.
Those people who post from various mail addresses need to take a bit
of care. Only mail addresses which are subscribed on the list are
recognized as member addresses - logical, isn't it?
Mit Freien Grüßen
