Yes. But the SPAM is unnecessary. I do also own a mailinglist and
the simplest way to stop the spam is, to allow only subscribers to 
post messages.

I assume none of the senders of those "important" offers did subscribe
to this list.

And anybody honestly interested in sudo will usually be subscribed.

So, please, please, please Todd, throw the switch and kick all
non-subscribers out of the list!

Best regards,
