Please deactivate gnumed-update for now. I am getting spam in dimensions I
have not seen before. Does anyone know if the spammer has registered with the
list or if they bypass regsitration and manage to spam through other means.

Horst has addded me as admin to the other mailing lists so I can now assist administering -update and -announce as well as -devel. (Thanks, Horst!)

I have updated the mailing list information page at

which now informs that postings from an unsubscribed address will be rejected.

In point of fact it is only unsubscribed emails sent to gnumed-devel that will be rejected. These will give the poster notice of the rejection and to email <address@hidden> with any concerns.

I chose the above because we do not at present have any list dedicated to newbies and because elsewhere (on the wiki) we have offered for anyone with trouble installing gnumed to contact "the list".

For our other lists ( -announce and -update) emails from unsubscribed addresses will simply be discarded.

Furthermore if it is observed there is still spam, it will be coming from existing or new subscribers whom the mailman package supports blacklisting. I can also set new subscribers to have their postings (by default) moderated, although I would rather first determine that the extra work is warranted.
