Kevin McLauchlan, said, "Strangely, after months of relative peace with the
Techwhirl stuff, the company filters picked yesterday to hold back about 100
list messages."
That probably occurred exactly because there were "about 100 list messages."
Some spam filters keep track of message volume by source, and yesterday's
sudden explosion of "Need a collective term" messages (way over the normal
volume) would have set off a volume alarm. A sudden upsurge in volume could
indicate that someone on the list has acquired a worm that is involved in
generating part of a denial of service attack.
