Are you serious?

I know what you mean, but I feel this is playing with symptoms. Given
the amount of spam relays, the auto*tools's list policy finally
should be reconsidered. 

Face it, this is not 1994 anymore, the internet has lost its innocence,
and badly maintained open lists like the auto*tools lists on are
a relict of the past.

No, AFAIS, somebody at seems to have configured their mailserver
in a way, I seem to have been automatically unsubscribed from many of
their lists without prior notice. Worse, the now
seems to filter out way too much, in such a way most of my postings
doesn't seem to make it through the server.
