Finally, we crawled the archives of the big lists and have come

So people who are 'real' but lurk a loti should reply to this message so they don't get moderated :)


Having very good experiences with spam filters (I have them all switched off :)
I did not even see the spam. My "manual spamfilter" successfully removed them.

Yes, I remember spam with nanog in the sender field. I receive a lot of
spam from everybody, including myself. That is why it never occured it me
it might not have been faked.

The question would be - if you're hit by the moderation bit, and post a message that makes it past whatever moderator's criteria.. Do you then lose the moderation bit, since you how have posted within the last 9 months, and thusly have (unmoderated) access?

Or maybe this is just an exercise in let's-fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants...

- d.

Mine is more a fly-by without pants :)

Having been hit by the lurking bit, you most likely have not spammed or
that bit would not be set in the first place.

Looks like a job for a trunk monkey.
