I can handle spam, I don't mind hitting 'd' when offered viagra, penis- 
elongation, russian brides or millions of dollars. It's annoying, but  
innocent. Damn, I can even handle Debian flame-wars ;-)

This stuff is not just spam. Debian is an international, peaceful and  
tolerant grass-root effort, and should not be involved in propagating  
this filth. It is hurtful and ugly, directed against the integrity of  
many of Debian's contributors and users. We can't afford to be seen as  
indifferent to this pollution of our community's channels of  

It would not help moderating this list, because the sludge is directed  
against many or all (?) of Debians mailing lists. We are a community  
of software developers, it *must* be possible centrally to block  
people who are submitting this type of hateful propaganda.

I know this is not exactly the right ML to get this issue resolved,  
but am looking advice and support in how to deal with it.
