It did not, the spammer subscribed to the list with the yahoo account
and then the listserv distributed the spam sent automatically to all of
us. I already sent off a message to the yahoo-abuse adress containg the
full header and cc'd the list owner. These things can be avoided by no
longer allowing anonymous yahoo and hotmail adresses and a welcome
message so before approving a subscription people must reply with their
name and a valid provider's adress. I assume that David in themean time
already removed the spammer from the sub list.
