You're not getting all of the spam that's being sent to this group.
I'm rejecting a fair amount of it because the list software detects it.
I'm not sure what the general solution is, most of it seems to be from a
random address with random content it in.  My guess is that a virus is
sending most of it because it doesn't appear to have any purpose.

Anyone got any local rules for blocking it to hand?
