+# Spam
+GNU mailing lists used to have no spam filtering applied -- everyone was
+allowed to post, the lists were completely unmoderated. This resulted in
+getting the lists spammed very much, as you can see in the web archives. If
+you're interested in getting hold of (mostly) spam-free mboxes, then talk to
+[[Thomas_Schwinge|tschwinge]]. Also [[read_about|unmoderated]] the
+spam-rejection techniques being used today.
