The message was just another spam. Delete it. The ACM list server is one of
my worst sources of spam - it doesn't do much filtering.

I don't think that is a option on the ACM list server. Another good option
is to moderate all messages from non-list members -- but I don't think that
is an option on the ACM list server, either.

We could move the list to another list server that does offer one or both of
these capabilities. I can offer the AdaIC.com list server for that (although
I'd expect that others may have better other suggestions).

We just recently moved the ARG list off of the ACM list server, as it has
been accepting, but not actually delivering, messages often lately. The last
straw was after a two day outage, when the entire list of mailing addresses
reverted to a 7 month old version. That is pretty bad, but at least the ARG
list is a closed list. If that happened to Team-Ada, where the effect would
be to resubscribe people who resigned the list, which would be very
unfriendly.
