    • They also spammed a large number of perl.org lists but were fortunately moderated out
    • Yeah, I asked on module-authors@ and it looks like they did. I sent a spam report to spamcop about it. Hopefully they'll get the idea and won't do it again. Thanks for calling them and educating them. You're a bit nicer than I am about spam :) (BTW, 01mailrc.txt.gz contains some of the mailing lists. I bet these guys just wrote a quick script to spam everyone there. Easy to do with a few lines of perl :)
