Sigh.  No, <george_umia1 at> won't, but
<george_umia3 at> will.  On the other mailing lists hosted on, I'm using a very effective spam filter.
Previously-unknown addresses get bounced to me on the first posting.
Subsequent postings are automatically approved unless I remove the
address from the approval list, which I do in the case of spam.

As it turns out, that algorithm would have let one of the VENTURE
CAPITAL messages through, but that's actually quite a rare case.  Most 
spammers don't send twice to the same address using the same envelope

Any objection to my turning on this feature for license-discuss?
