Ugh, here we go again.

The consensus of Team-ers has been that this list is _open_,
i.e., that it does not require you to be a member in order to
post. That leaves us open to occasional spam, like this.
The general feeling is that the occasional spam is worth it
so that this Ada community is open to all.

Please, Team-ers, don't waste our time and bandwidth reacting
to spam. We've had spam/no-spam tirades on this list that have
gone on MUCH longer than the spam. The spam is irritating, but
the spammer will never see the complaint, because these spammer
programs run on autopilot, cruising for open lists. Only the
Team-ers will read the complaintys, so that is more irritating
than the spam.

Please, please: if we get spammed, just use your delete key.
