* quaid has changed the topic to: FDSCo mtg -- Mailing list spam
* stickster here
<quaid> hmm, without Bob I don't think we get the full impatc
<quaid> but aiui
<quaid> he was concerned with list moderators stepping on each other
<quaid> outside of designating hours of coverage (horrors!)
<quaid> I think we just have to be careful
<quaid> and make sure we know what we are rejecting
<quaid> for this I use the Mailman WebUI to be sure
<jmbuser> quaid: Is there any way to prevent the spam mail from
cloggin up my webmail?
<jmbuser> s / cloggin / clogging /
<quaid> also ...
<quaid> Mike was going to adjust our filters
<quaid> but afaict he hasn't
<quaid> I don't know quite what to do there and haven't found anyone
who can help
* quaid tries not to say M I K E ' s name so as to not distract him
from FAS2 fun
<jmbuser> The signal-to-noise ratio drops drastically with spam and
causes me to miss real information
<quaid> I'm not sure if the spam filters drop the message before it
gets to the queue
<quaid> I'll drop mike an email about the filters
<quaid> ok, that's about what we can do
<quaid> jmbuser: are you using the web interface for moderating? or
still using the reply-to in the email stuff?
<stickster> Hm, I haven't seen any spam on f-docs-l.
<jmbuser> quaid: web interface
<stickster> Maybe it's my Gmail at work?
<quaid> stickster: it doesn't land on list, it hits the moderation
<stickster> Oh that.
* mkranz (n=mkranz h-217 111 50 179 host de colt net) has joined
<quaid> so it's moderator email that you see
<quaid> ok, anything else here?
<stickster> *AH*. I've been getting a BOATLOAD of that on f-a-b and
f-board-l that I do have to moderate, so fair enough.
<quaid> stickster: mike figured out a formula for using RHT set spam
<stickster> quaid: I've been considering simply rejecting email from
non-subscribers, at least on f-board-l.
<quaid> I just sent him email, once I get the details, i'll publish
and advertise to list admins
<quaid> stickster: then you lose the people who we ask to reply to
<stickster> s/non-subscribers/non-subscribers who aren't preapproved/
<quaid> aiui, the SA headers are present and can be used by Mailman
<stickster> OK, not to drive this into the ground, sorry all.
<quaid> I just want to avoid re-doing Mike's figuring here, so I'll
see what he says, then try it on f-docs-l ...etc.
<quaid> ok, moving on ...
<stickster> If it works, let me know and I'll follow suit
