Yeah it just seems to get like that after a while to me. Specially when people keep sending help messages with no details.

Although I have to manually filter 20-30 spams a day on my LUG's mailing list admin panel. I do prefer them to forums but they take getting used to. I personally think Usenet is superier to both but hardly anyone uses it anymore.

Usenet was superior, before the spam got out of control. but without the subscription control, it's impossible to prevent.

How can spammers post to your LUG ML? Is it open-posting? Or are some of your members spammers? Smile

It used to have a public web archive and spam bots picked up the ML address via that. None of the spam posts make it to the list as anything posted by a non-subscriber is flagged for moderation, but 99.9% of the time this is spam.

Ah right. Most lists either dump or bounce non-subscriber posts.
