What I find interesting is that about a month after I took over the list I
now run (about 550 total members), I started using restrict_post because
we were getting 3-4 of the magazine spams a week, and it was really
getting annoying. Since that time, I have only gotten one magazine spam
(since all non-member posts bounce to the list-owner). It's almost as if
the spammer was on the list.
