Guys, I'm not sure it's all that amusing. Some recent
wp-hackers messages just don't show up... and I'm beginning
to suspect that SpamAssassin intercepts them (even with a
generous 8.0 threshold). I haven't check this to confirm
because it's merely impossible to wade through tens or
handreds of thousands of messages... it's unresponsive.
I've missed at least one direct reply to my message and I
can see it in the static mailman archives. I've also missed
a large portion of this thread. It would be reasonable to
assume that other who rely on the same blacklists, e.g.
Apache's SA filters, will suffer also (Google included).
I have always thought that mailing list had some implicit
exclusion from mail filters, but maybe it's no longer the
