He must have subscribed, just like you or me. Think about it. This list
is a juicy target for spammers because by sending one email to the list
from a disposable Hotmail account, they can spam thousands of people
repeatedly until the list administrators clue in and ban him. To make
matters worse, people who are too lazy to trim posts properly end up
unwittingly helping the spammer by quoting the original spam in its
entirety in their responses to the list. For the spammer, it's the gift
that keeps on giving.
