Thanks for the reminder...I forgot that I can actually do something about
Also, I do understand that spammers change addresses, but with this one
being sent to my list address (by the way, I've gotten a total of 10 for the
same list, and it's been happening over a period of about 12 hours, so he's
kept it for that long), it would make me feel more comfortable. I can
always go back and remove them. It's been sent to -L, -D, -admin and the
list address. I know putting it on reject won't keep it from the -L, -D,
and admin addy, but those aren't the ones I'm concerned about, I too know
about the delete key.
Joan, thanks for the reminder about the word SP*AM with filters!
Michelle-who luckily just got rid of almost all of her lists!

I know what you are saying, and I believe all of them I have received
yesterday and today (3 each for a half dozen or so lists) have all had the
same return addy, oddly enough. If he is going to make all of my lists,
though, I have a lot more to receive before it is over. Obviously, my
"delete" key works fine, but I am starting to get tired of doing it.
