- Feb 1, 2007Does it truly matter whether we create a new group or keep this one. Isn't
it a bad sign when a spam posting generate the most posts in a week?

I would support your starting another list in the fact that
the list owner only gave you limited moderation powers.

obligations. He did not want to give me the ability to change group
settings but wanted a moderator just in case. He felt the group
should be an open to the public with requiring approval. Because of
this anyone can join and often when they do they post spam and over
half unsubscribe before I can ban them. Or they join with three or
four addresses and I then must ban each one. This means they will
have to use another address to join. With hundreds of free email
accounts it is easy to get another addy. I don't know there is a new
member until they post e which is too late to stop spammers
What do list members want to do? We can form another group that is
moderated on membership and content for new members This would
drastically reduce spam. I don't know what to do at this point. If
you have ideas please let me know. I appreciate your offer Larry and
can add you if we have a new group.
