Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

Do moderators and webmasters get spam?

Postby Anteaus » 2011-03-02 10:17

Just a quick question as a matter of interest: How much spam do the forum moderators, and the Debian.org maintainers get?

Do they find it necessary to use aggressive spamfiltering on accounts, or not?

Reason I ask is that I run an email security-awareness site, and one issue we're looking-at is the harvesting of 'mailto' hyperlinks from webpages and its relation to spam volumes.

Just to clarify I'm referring to email spam here, not robotic forum posts.

We don't actually get that much spam on the forums email addresses... but we do get a fair bit to @debian.org - luckily, we have the nice DSA team to train spamfilters correctly, setup greylisting, etc.
