All,

I don't know about you, but the amount of spam received via the Usenet
group is getting tiresomes.

Thus, I'd propose to move comp.land.ruby to filter income messages for
spam, with false negatives being more desirable than false positives,
while doing the same (maybe) for the Ruby Forum (human labour to
'break' captchas is cheap, alas, but the site doesn't seem to be
popular enough with the botnets. Small mercies, I guess).

Of course, if the technical / administrative overhead is increased far
too much (or a possible spam filter breaks the ML<->Usenet<->Ruby
Forum gateway), this shouldn't be done.

I'd like to put this out for discussion, especially given the possible
problems filtering would introduce.

(Ah, how soon!) they forget
When I've moved on to some other place,
There may be one or two,
When I've played and passed through,
Who'll remember my song or my face.
