Yet an inexperienced person, I have been reading List-Managers months.
The best technical comments, it seems to me, have been during
the spam debate.
I hope this topic does not disappear all at once.
In this area of problem, my understanding is, we have types (#1)
junk-mail advertizing, and (2) a vandalistic "litter" kind of material.
(Am uncertain about all this and hoping for comment.)
A major reason for problem is the following:
The perpetrators tend to have made themselves unreachable. A
significant amount of my accounts (if I am now manager, not
apprentice) are not active or valid. Mail for them I normally bounce to
sender. But in the case of this authorless spam, it winds up in my lap.
Oh, I'll look a mess!
Some of us have lists which are sensitive. Many are concerned about
having a reasonable amount of privacy in these times.

Spam may not be just a matter of bad taste.
Say for a vegetarian.
We used to give sheep their medicine, by
prying their mouths open.
