I can't speak for Scott, but my spam protection is to use various RBLs
(I find SpamAssasin and the like OK, but nowhere near as effective).
Mandrake isn't on any of the RBLs that I use so spam for the list sneaks
through. However, it's only a matter of time before SpamCop or someone
else gets notified and then this list will be up sh*t creek...
This situation is preventable (there was no spam before the "upgraded"
system) so what's going wrong? It simply isn't good enough to blame it
on the software "No... this is just the joys of having sympa handling
things again". If sympa can't handle it, why move to it? This is a
security list, and the operators really *should* no better...
