The problem has started already. I think I subscribed originally as 
n4si@pobox.com. I have since changed my mailer to show lrod@pobox.com as the 
source address for a variety of reasons. Below are my cogent comments and lucid 
reasons to leave things alone. They apparently did not make the list due to 
the aforementioned change. I now have to change my mailer back to get this out.

Wait a minute. How "bad" is this problem? Since March 13 (when my new computer 
went on line) I have only received 3 or 4 spam messages through the reflector. 
I think I can handle one a week. I don't like it, but anyone who thinks the 
'net is going to remain spam-free hasn't been getting USPS service for the last 
several years. 

I would much prefer that Tree expend his energies in response to our 
occassionally quirky TRLog requests than have to spend time comparing addys 
before posting messages.
