Gary Allpike manages the list.  I think the problem you might be having
is that after the spamming incident, Gary configured the list so that
any email not sent from an address subscribed to the list will be
silently dropped.  Personally, I don't think this really helps since
anyone who wants to spam the list can just forge the From address to be
someone who is subscribed and this doesn't make it any easier/harder to
identify the culprit.



I'm not trying to give users what they want, I'm trying to give them
freedom, which they can then accept or reject. If people don't want
freedom, they may be out of luck with me, but I won't allow them to 
define for me what is right, what is worth spending my life for.
