Spam is an essential part of internet life, why are you trying to stop 
it? It'd be like going to the pool for a swim and finding the pool only 
filled to 10%. But seriously I have also noticed an influx on spam, but 
I was unable to attribute it to any one list, I have the same address 
for all my Apache project mailing lists, and it's on that address that I 
get a lot of spam.
