Just did a quick check of this week's posts on the archive. I counted 41
spam topics -- 38 of which were in HTML.
I don't know whether we can set a filter on the list to reject posts
containing the string "<html>" or "<HTML>". If you get individual e-mails
from SAS-L, rather than the digest, and can set a filter to reject posts
from SAS-L that contain those strings, it should block most of the spam.
(I'm assuming individual e-mails still has the list as a sender, rather than
the poster as sender; since I get the digest, that's an untested assumption.
Joe Kelley, any hope of implementing this for the list?
