Au contraire. The spam mitigation measures in use on this list have been 
discussed and disclosed many, many times. And it seems to me they are 
quite effective.

For example: today (21 August 2017) there have been, if I recall, two 
spams that appeared on the list. There have been two (now three) 
replies. In contrast, my stupid little home mail server has received 91 
spams today so far. Two came in while I was typing this.
