During the last few weeks, spam messages sent to this list have 
multiplied enormously to about four per day. You don't see any of them, 
because the list server holds back messages from addresses that are not 
subscribed for moderator approval. This means I get up to 10 messages 
per day (including reminders) concerning spam to the MMTK mailing list. 
Too much for my taste. So I changed the mailing list configuration to 
silently discard all messages from unknown addresses.

For most of you that makes no difference, but I know that some are 
subscribed with one address but send from another one. In the past that 
merely caused a delay, but now their messages will not arrive on the 

The best solution for those who use multiple e-mail addresses is to 
subscribe with all of them and then disable message delivery for all 
but one. You can then post from any address, but receive messages only 
once. If you cannot use this approach (for example because you cannot 
receive the subscription confirmation e-mails to some address), then 
contact me with an explanation of the situation, there are a few other 
options available to the mailing list manager.
