Mostly they just take it.  There's actually a surprisingly small
amount of spam considering the number of lists.  Every so often,
though, there's a big bolus of spam that gets a lot of people mad
and proposing solutions.  They may actually have some filtering
set up at this point, but I'm really not sure.

    RF> latex-l's like that, afaik.  (at least, that's what i say
    RF> in the faq.)

Hmm.  The last time I looked (which was when I first posted to
this discussion, as I forgot to cc: myself and I apparently have
the list set to not cc: me automatically), I had to log in to view
messages.  Maybe there's a different archive somewhere where
that's not true?


 Man cannot be civilised, or be kept civilised by what he does in his
            spare time; only by what he does as his work.
