I stated this out before:

I am moderating this list and Rainer had access to the spamfilter
rules.... IMHO Joel has the position of him. Thorsten IMHO has access
as well.... (More comments underneath)

Liebe Grüße, / Yours,

I'd never ever do so on the TDF infrastructure, it's against any good mail practice I know of, but the feedback I got when noting that was that "developers want it that way". Well... I don't know why, but it seems I have to accept that, and we need to live with spam then. :-(

Florian, some questions to you:
Is this the dev or qa list? -> i am moderating on both systems and,
personally, I like "our" way more. What is even more important, that
noone likes to get spammed and (IMHO this has been stated out before
by a dev) bery few devs are subscribed to this list....

Why is the dev list not spammed? -> IMHO (without being subscribed for
a long time there) the list is not spammed....
