I've already sent mail to the genie-postmaster saying that some
daemon process is mailbombing the techwr-l list. I suspect some
number of other people have (or will) be doing the same.
I'm on a Unix box, and I've set my mail handler to quietly destroy
messages from genie-postmaster -at- geis -dot- com (in the MH .maildelivery
file). Once I cleared out my queue, I don't see these anymore.
Depending on your mail handler program, you might be able to do
rlr -at- hal -dot- com
delta1 -at- netcom -dot- com
