stds-802-16-tg2: new anti-spam policy on 802.16 reflectors
The 802.16 reflectors have been suffering from a rising level of spam.
I have finally decided that spam filtering based on keywords is a
losing battle. While my filters trap a lot of spam, far too much gets
through. I have therefore moved the lists to restricted-post
configuration, in which only subscribers may post. I had been
avoiding this because, unless you post from the same address with
which you are subscribed, your message will bounce. I know that many
of us use multiple email addresses and don't want to have to remember
which one they need to use for posting. However, the continuing spam
assault is forcing my hand.
On an unrelated note, I have also terminated the following ancillary
802.16 email reflectors:
This leaves 802.16 with the following reflectors:
*stds-802-16 Working Group
*stds-802-16-mobile TGe (Mobile Wireless MAN [802.16e])
*stds-802-16-tg1 TGC (Conformance, 10-66 GHz [1802.16.1, 1802.16.2])
*stds-802-16-tg2 TG2 (Coexistence [80216.2a])
*stds-802-16-tg3 TGd (System Profiles, 2-11 GHz [802.16d])
To join (or unjoin) any of them, see <http://ieee802.org/16/subscribe.html>.
I may further consolidate the reflectors in the future.
