    The LSM list was hit hard with the Sobig.F viurs, and that was our 
    fault. Mid-way through the Sobig.F storm, we put in a filter to stop it.
    Fortunately, that filterhas continued to work in the current Swen virus 
    storm, as I have not seen any Swen instances here.
    And for that matter, since that filter was put in September 8, there 
    have been 4 spam leaked through (including manboylove), and zero 
    viruses. For perspective, during that same period, there were 18 posts 
    discussing the spam & virus problem :) So while there was a historic 
    problem, it's pretty good since Sept. 8.
    Again, I will share the filter with any individuals who think they can 
    improve it. I'm just not posting it publicly to avoid helping the spammers.
