What I see is indistinguishable from spam but with more annoying intention (I get into this in detail below) amounting to harassment. I'm surprised that this behavior is tolerated and not identified as a source of unkind communication.

Anyhow, you can make the ML mail you your password and then use it to unsubscribe. That will put an end to the annoying [Hangout - NYLXS] mails consisting of broken
up threads and a good amount of spam.
In my case that did not work. At first I couldn't reach the Mailman server at all to get to the web front end. Now I can get to it but I'm told that I am not a subscriber because his Mailman instance doesn't see my email address on its subscriber list for that "Hangout" mailing list. Messages to are going to me, and correspondingly I've been receiving messages with's Mailman password.

Therefore I believe that has set up a forwarding address of "" and made it so that email to that address is routed to me. I can only imagine that the benefit to him is that if anyone he does this to complains, he can falsely claim that they're not subscribed when clearly they are receiving the unsolicited messages. In other words, this is intentional.

I tried unsubscribing from that mailing list and apparently he re-subscribed that account back to that mailing list. So this would seem to be an intentionally annoying. He knows what is doing, knows it is unwanted, and keeps doing it.
I also asked to be removed several times to no effect.

You may be able to add filters through your email provider's interface, based on the unique identifiers in those messages. I have successfully removed all of his spam in this way; the emails never make it to my inboxes.

I also blocked all of his known domain names in the same way for good measure; if somebody refuses to stop harassing me through spam, I see no reason to ever waste another minute reading what they write (which was full of hatred to begin with anyway).

I hope the suggestions above work for you (and anybody else who is being harassed in this way).
