Are you saying you got spam that went to the list, as I have not, or are
you saying you got spam sent directly to you and you suspect the spammer
got the address through the list somehow?

I'm just getting the usual crap, but nothing to indicate it has anything
to do with this list. Most of what I get comes from whois database gleaning.

I'm sure my 77-year-old mother is having trouble deciding whether to
order viagra or cialis from some outfit claiming to be a "Canadian"
pharmacy, but has a .hk domain :-)
