Remember that SAS-L is (more-or-less) mirrored as a USENET newsgroup:
comp.soft-sys.sas. Anyone can post to non-moderated newsgroups, and
enterprising spammers can sneak stuff into the moderated ones as well,
I read the newsgroup at home and get SAS-L at work. I like the double
structure, not least because explaining the concept of newsgroups to
newbies is not all that easy--whole nother technology, doncha know. But
it has its drawbacks, and double protection from spam, viruses, etc. is
part of the game, alas.

> Is the email below a test to see whether emailing to SAS-L works? Can we expect a bunch of new spam in the future? It is evident that the amount of spam on the list is currently increasing. Do spammers subscribe for a short period of time, send their spam and then unsubscribe? Or is contributing messages to SAS-L not longer limited to subscribers?
