The spammers had subscribed to the list, and could hence post to it. I'm  
surprised it has taken that long before they have started targeting  
Mailman, but now it seems they have.

I'm predicting captcha support in Mailman RSN. ;)

I have blacklisted the spammer, but we'll see if the script is smart  
enough to get around it.
