I've noticed that some s**ammers seem to hit some of my lists more than
others, but I hope you're taking the time to read the messages in the pending
requests to be sure that
you're not banning someone who has a legitimate question or message that is
for your list.
I have several state/county lists and there are often posts from people in
Europe who are
looking for descendants of ancestors who immigrated to America. In the
past two years,
I've helped an elderly gentleman with a German email address find great
uncles who immigrated and a young man with a Yugoslavian email address whose
grandmother went to America in the 1920's.
Of course if the foreign addresses are just S**M, that's a different story
and the messages
need to be marked Discard and sent to the s**m filter
My two cents worth,
In a message dated 2/27/2008 5:17:40 A.M. Eastern Standard Time,
I adopted a "state" list about a month ago and discovered that people from
all over the world are trying to post messages on it. Almost every day I
need to go in and ban that poster. I'm just curious if "these people"
pick one List to bother over others.
