Mailing Lists

Eventually we'll change over to more automated mailing list management. Unwanted subscribers sending unwanted traffic is, of course, the concern when automation is enabled. This link leads to a subscription page of a test list that we're using to test protective measures. It should be found by harvesters before long, and that will generate incoming spam requests, which will exercise the filters.
