Yes, this is the *primary* reason that I remove them, especially from the
discussion lists. The list that the DOS attacks usually hit, however, is
moderated-edit -- so there's not much opportunity for gathering any
addresses other than my own. And spamming me is a *very* bad idea, unless
your entire ISP chain approves of the practice. (Not much I can do about
AGIS-originated spam. *sigh* Here's to hoping that CAUCE is successful.)

P.S.--My original post apparently took a nice 1-week vacation at the mail server. Odd.
