How would you prevent spammers from using an email submission mechanism? Security through obscurity won’t work. I’ve got an email address that got onto the spamners' lists despite only ever being published in a short-run book distributed to about 50 people. If we don’t solve that problem first, we’ll be right back in much the same mess as today. Moderation doesn’t help. Someone could weed the current mailing list archives, too. What we want is to bar such things at the gates. > I personally prefer reading archives via: > > https://marc.info/?l=fossil-users > https://marc.info/?l=fossil-dev Is that just about features? What features do you find essential in the current mailing list archive services over what’s currently presented at fossil-scm.org/forum ? Keep in mind that Fossil Forums gives us a lot of features we don’t get from third-party mail archive / gateway services: http://fossil-scm.org/index.html/doc/trunk/www/forum.wiki _______________________________________________ fossil-users mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.fossil-scm.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/fossil-users
