Dick's suggestion about possibly filtering anonymous posting at the
listserver makes sense. But is it technically possible?

Like Dick, I now trash anonymous mail items without reading them. I posted
the last nasty anonymous message back to the originating site's
administrator, along with some considered comments (haven't received a reply
yet) :^)

While it may not bother Dick about the spammers, there are those that pay
for the privilege of being spammed. I too have unlimited email use, but if
was paying I can think of at least three things I'd rather pay for!
