    No need to apologise, I run a business that depends heavily on e-mail . We are plagues by all sorts of rubbish. Dont worry if there is nothing more you can do.

      Hello,

      Miriam, the spammer you are referring to, "h.peter fischer" has been
      removed as a member, has been banned multiple times, his/her messages
      delted daily, and Yahoo Groups staff has been notified about the
      issue. However, all of this seems to be of limited effect since the
      offender simply joins again under a slightly different pseudonym and
      continues spamming the next day. I'm not sure what the intention of
      all this is, but this has resulted in the understandable loss of a
      number of members from this group lately.

      Because of this, I am now changing the way people can join this
      group: I will have to approve all requests to join. Furthermore, I
      will not approve *anyone* requesting to join this group within the
      next weeks until this is resolved. Hopefully, this will only have to
      be a temporary measure.

      I would like to apologize to the members of our group that have had
      to tolerate lenghty off-topic spam messages, especially e-mail
      Digests of messages that have clogged inboxes. This is not unique to
      our group and we are trying to resolve the problem as quickly as
      possible.
