    Members of this list, who must be among the most patient souls in the
    virtual world, will be gratified to learn that the approach recommended by
    David Sitman has just now resulted in the elimination of the first
    attempted act of spamming since it was put in place. Mazel tov, as he might

    Humanist's archives at Virginia are still in somewhat of a mess, badly
    formatted, with spammed messages cluttering up volume 17. Attention will be
    paid to the problems here as time and resources of other kinds permit. You
    may be relieved to discover (as I recently did) that a separate and better
    formatted archive, though still cluttered, is accessible from
    lists.princeton.edu, under Public Lists, beginning with January 1989. The
    Virginia archive, from www.kcl.ac.uk/cch/humanist/ has items from the
    beginning in May 1987.

    So, we continue.
