This forum/list is not moderated. At least not yet. We are trying to catch
and block the spammers, but these are all automatically generated spam, so
it's not that easy to stop.

We're on it. Please don't make the problem worse by over-reacting or
meta-posting about the spam, thereby compounding the noise.

The anti-Windows sentiment is not really appropriate on this list, either.
Plone supports deployment and development on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.
We intend to keep it that way. Most developers and users, anecdotally, use
OS X or Linux, but frankly there is no "slant" one way or another.
