I do my best. We have this list as subscribers-only simply to prevent this
from happening, but the sneaky spammers have gone more sneaky lately and now
they actually subscribe to mailing lists first and then post their nastiness
and it's hard for me to do anything particular about it.

You should of course have your own, local spam protection too.

If it did, I didn't pay attention. I personally get thousands of spam every
day, so sometimes I don't spot when the spam origin from places I admin/nurse.
