[REBOL] Re: ...[spam subject deleted]...

From: joel:neely:fedex at: 14-Aug-2001 1:32

Hi, Marcel, I wholeheartedly agree with any expression of concern that the REBOL mailing list is becoming subjected to spam. I would further request that The Powers That Be consider a policy that any appropriation of the REBOL mailing list for commercial solicitation unrelated to REBOL cause immediate suspension of list privileges of the account from which said spam originates.

Notice that the spammer sent the spam to itself, but (in all likelihood) BCC-ed [rebol-list--rebol--com], thus ensuring that any responses would further pollute the list, rather than being received by the spammer itself. This is standard low-tech fraud, and usually constitutes further evidence that the spammer knew that it was engaging in socially undesirable behavior and wished to avoid the consequences thereof.
