There are a couple things that can be done to prevent spam from going through
the unicycling list.
Make a blacklist of e-mail addresses and servers that are known to send out
spam. I think it can be implemented with procmail on the server that the
unicycling list is hosted on. Here’s a site about blacklists:
Bounce all mail without the mailing list address in the to: or cc: fields.
I’m not sure if this can be easily done with the mailing list, but there are
instruction for doing it for personal email at:
Block certain phrases in the header or body of e-mails to not be sent to the
list and be forwarded to the maintainer who can then repost any relevant
posts that happened to get filtered out. That could be a bit annoying for
that person though, and could be eliminated. This list is managed by a
program (actually a perl script) called majordomo that can be edited to be
able to do this. Here is a link to instructions on how it’s done:
I’ll contact Ken to see how we can implement any of these.
