RE: SPAM Fest
I agree with your reluctance to restrict posting. It is preferable for the
reflector to allow posting by non-SEC 802 participants. Deleting a few
messages until the spam is blocked is a small price to pay.

Dear SEC reflector members,
As you are aware, we have been subjected to a flurry of SPAM over the
last few days. I have contacted the IEEE postmaster and the manager of
electronic services to enlist their help. I am hoping that they can
install some filters that will block these obvious SPAMs. If all else
fails, we can try "restrict_post", so that only members of the
SEC reflector can post to the reflector, but I am very reluctant to take
I ask your understanding as we work to resolve this problem.
