what is the status of archives containing full email
thought this problem has been fixed. can you update me on what is
the current style of archiving, and what is visible.
Currently, Mailman's sources have been modified so that any new
archives generated, will have the email address part masked. This
means all the older archive mails (before October 2005) will still
have email addresses in plain text.
I'll try to write a script which updates email addresses for the older
entries in the archives also.
There is no issue of mirroring since gnowledge.org
is the default

Subject: Increase in spam due to the mirror?

I used to subscribe to ILUG-BOM couple of years ago
and later stopped due to other interests. I used to
use this email address to post my messages. I have
noticed suddenly that this email address that never
used to recieve spam is suddenly recieving lots of it.
One reason might be that the pages containing my old
messages have now been mirrored on gnowledge.org
since indexed by google. These pages on gnowledge.org
contain all the email addresses including mine in
clear text. So I am suspecting spammers have gotten
hold of them and lot of other active/inactive members
have been recieving spam but ignoring it.
I request you to kindly look into this and disable
printing out email address in clear text on
gnu /noo/ n. Ox like antelope; (abbr.) /gnoo/ n.
(recursive acronym) Gnu's Not Unix.
