Gosh, we'd certainly regret that. We'd really miss your forwarding the
entire spam message straight back to the list, with accusatory comments
For the record, here are the antispam measures currently being employed
regarding this list:
Mail is not accepted from domains in the Realtime Blackhole List
Mail is not accepted unless the To: field points at the list.
As of today, mail is forwarded for moderation if the Subject: field
contains three consecutive exclamation points.
There's precious little I can do to prevent spam if it appears to come
from a member's address, except moderate the entire list, which I'm not
going to do.

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
