I will be cleaning up the list later this weekend. That offender has being
doing that for a long time and others seem to have had out of offices for
about 6 months. 

On a similar note and more as an FYI, I can get up to 50 / 60 spam mails a
day sent to the list and on average about 3 / 4 virus's. As I have said
before many of the virus payloads originate from companies and people that
should know better. 

I am going to chat to the sys admins but I may adopt a policy of removing
anyone with the following

1. Out of Office
2. Human Spam Control
3. Virus Payloads

To the moderator:

After sending my post to this list, I got this replay from one of the
subscribers:

You´ve just sent a message to william.faria () uol com br In order to 
confirm the sent message, please click here This confirmation is 
necessary because william.faria () uol com br uses Antispam UOL, a 
service that avoids unwanted messages like advertising, pornography, 
viruses, and spams.

This is absolute nonsense in a maillist for every poster would have to
whitelist herself with that subscriber. Imagine what happens when this
strategy becomes common among all of us...

I would vote for you to unsubrscibe that subscriber, he is poluting the mail
traffic.

Meanwhile could you please ask the list to not send holiday / away messages
for I hate to get flooded only because I posted to a maillist...

Best regards,
Adrian
