If I knew that, I would do it myself. :-(
Spam is fairly effectively cut out by the U. Ga. list. But SAS-L
also picks up spam from the comp.soft-sys-sas Usenet group (which
is essentially the same set of threads), as well as several other
subscription points around the world, which do NOT seem to be
bothering to do their utmost to screen out this trafe. So SAS-L is
worse than some mailing lists on this, but better than others.
So your best bet is to have your own spam filter set up to screen
SAS-L mail, just as you screen your routine mail. If you get SAS-L
in digest form, there's nothing that can be done about that. Sorry.
And remember, not all posts that are all caps are spam.
I was just back in Nashville for SESUG. How come I didn't meet you?
