Given the below longer quote from Michael P's recent posting at [1], Why 
oh Why would you (Michael) at all wish to accept it upon yourself to be 
practically-speaking the _sole_ operator/hoster (specifically on the BALUG 
VM) and _primary_ Mailman administrator for the vast, overriding majority 
of the remaining central Bay Area Linux User Groups !!!???

Also referring to Michael's recent posting 'relocate SF-LUG list from 
linuxmafia.com (on linuxmafia.com) to lists.sf-lug.org (on BALUG VM)?' at 
(( and excluding for the time-being, Rick M's active 'Local mailing 
list for the CABAL Linux user group' of [3] ))

Quoting Michael Paoli <Michael.Paoli at cal.berkeley.edu> from [1]:
So ... recently ...
Did have some "discussions" regarding spam, and anti-spam, and
MTAs and lists, and listadmin email address(es), etc.

And, yeah, rather recently, did fair bit 'o cleanup, etc. on
some relatively crusty older configurations ... though the core software
had been quite kept up, the configurations were no longer up-to-snuff,
nor were they particularly manageable/maintainable ... so ...
spent a fair bit 'o time improving that and getting it (much) more
current and up-to-snuff.  Still lots (or at least quite a bit) more
to do ... but now in considerably better shape.
And ... covered most of that else-list(s):

Also quite a bit on wiki:
And spammers abusing the BALUG VM is a problem that goes way back,
even many years ago, they had bots using the wiki registration form ...
because it generates an email.....
