Apologies for the spam spillage. We will remove all occurrences of spam that get through to the list from the public archive, but in the meantime, please just zap the spam from your mailboxes. Google's filters seem to be pretty good, and on the whole we considered it more valuable not to overtax subscribers than to completely prevent the spammers. If this changes we'll consider locking down the list some more so that this sort of incident is even less likely.
