So far I haven't seen anyone but Dean Anderson post to the "ietf-honest"
list, so for me there's no extra workload involved - my sieve filters
are already doing the Right Thing.
None of this suggests to me, however, that we ought to do something.
My understanding (and I'd appreciate being disabused if I'm wrong) is
that Mr Anderson is already not allowed to post to IETF lists, even
though he sometimes manages to do so anyway. If I'm right, I can't see
how banning him for longer, we mean it this time, neener neener, is
any help. We just need better sieve rules, not better ietf ones.
We have a name for people who subscribe you to receive mail you don't
want, and that word is "spammer". In this case, we even know exactly who
the spammer is.
Dealing with the spammer is not an IETF matter, no matter what he calls
