I agree, but to fight the amount of spam that goes through is not easy some
times. The problem with mailing lists like this one is that the from line
does NOT say it is from the redhat list but instead, the user who sent to
the redhat list. So they can't put that into their program to allow it to
come through. I don't use these type of services, but when getting around
10,000 emails a day and only about 1,000 are valid for me, it is real tempting.
