Hello from Gregg C Levine writing for myself
We have another problem. Someone with Hong Kong connections is posting
messages claiming to provide a good deal for website hosting. It is in that
Chinese dialect, and in English. I have seen two of those, one here on this
list, and one, on of the other lists. Presumably it is the agency itself who
is doing. What about configuring the listserver so that it rejects postings
that do not correspond to a subscribed address? If that one works, then I
will suggest to the team that runs the RSVP list over at ISI, they are also
running Majordomo.
