Subject: Re: SPAM forcing unsubscription
Some of the other listservers force subscription before allowing a post . . .
seems to cut down on the SPAM on those . . . .

There's a problem with the spam on the list that some of you may not have
considered: a lot of it is pornographic, and violates many companies'
policies about sexual harassment and/or appropriate use of computer
equipment. This weekend one of the digests was so bad that IT management
has asked me to unsubscribe. (The system scores incoming e-mail for
inappropriate content; anything over 30 gets blocked. They'd never seen
anything over 80 before, until this digest, which scored nearly 200.)
Yes, I can continue to post via the web -- but I can no longer get e-mails
or digests at work, making it much harder to contribute in a timely
fashion. I'm sure my company is not the only one with such policies, and
from what I can tell these policies are becoming more and more common.
Joe Kelley, are you out there? HELP!
