Re: FW: Pharmacy spam on Aroid-L


I received the "Pharmacy mail", too, but I simply deleted it, since my needs in such mails (and BTW the offered products ;-)     ) is more than satisfied. ( LOL - just to state this clear: I'm just joking!)

But seroiusly, I only wondered that the aroid-L was hit by a SPAM mail the first time; I wondered even more since I remembered that the aroid-L mails are usually approved.

However -

No reason to apologize, Steve, this happens and as  you indicate, it is probably more interesting how the SPAMER got into the list.

Don't worry too much and thanks for you effort and the time you spent and spend for the aroid-L.

Best (and Happy growing),

Well, that answers a question I had, which was did anyone else see this

I was extremely surprised, about 1:10 am local time last Friday morning,
to see in my inbox what appeared to be a post from Aroid-L. I was
surprised both because I had not approved any posts at that time (and no
posts should go out without approval), and also because it was clearly
spam, and also because I didn't even see it in the queue awaiting

I immediately fired off a note to another local member of the list who is
a night owl, asking if he'd seen the note, while I dug through the e-mail

The other member didn't see the spam post. That left me wondering who had
seen it, but I hated to ask and generate a lot of traffic if it turned it
the answer was only me.

In the meantime, of course, I've been digging through both the spam e-mail
and the listserver settings and options, trying to figure out how this got
through. I have a theory, which would mean a lot of lists besides Aroid-L
were vulnerable and that it was beyond our control, but I haven't tested
it yet. (It requires some setup. You will probably see us try it later
this week.)

In the meantime, I apologize for the intrusion on our otherwise peaceful
