I will have a look, but I can't help here much since I'm neither the
list owner, nor do I have administrator rights.  There is *no* spam
filter active!  David could do something, but he has no time, as we
all know :-(

As a first aid, I'm now filtering address@hidden' which seems to
post the spam on the list; additionally, I've removed the spam from
the March archive.
