Re: Gary Wright, the Dreamweaver online chat (fwd)

On another list, there was an instance of a spammer joining and spamming 
the first post.  The list owner has taken to approving the first posting 
of a
new member to prevent that from happening again.  But that is just one 
list -
not statistically meaningfull.  But the spam did bother the list members.
