Honestly - I have no idea/recollection about the spam (since apparently 
it's going to a black hole of doom now and not being held for 
moderation, hard to say :D) levels historically, and I didn't set up the 
mailing list originally.  Paul - I know a while back you were looking at 
some of the lists with heavy-spam-patterns, was this one of the lists in 

That said, if it's anything like the other lists I am on that have 
moderation for non-members, yeah, there's potentially a crapton of 
spam.  This list does have mails from fedoraproject.org whitelisted 
(with some explicit spammy addresses blacklisted, like postmaster, etc), 
and I just added redhat.com mails as well, since we can probably expect 
that there are some redhat folks who may inquire about fudcons.

Let's see what Paul has to say about if this was one of the lists that 
got mega-spam.
