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."

Kevin:
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.
