I just checked my spambox and most of the spam there was sent through
the caml-list.  Most of it is "real" spam, and not windows viruses and

The caml-list server does mark the messages with spam-oracle, although
it doesn't get as good of a hit ratio as my spam-oracle database.  (I
didn't know I was getting these messages until now).

Historically, though, the caml-list has gotten more spam than any other
list I've been on.  Perhaps the administrators need to reconsider only
allowing subscribers to post, or something more complicated, like
requiring feedback to post if you aren't a subscriber.
