What SPUG-spam have you seen? I haven't noticed anything in
ages, so unless I've overlooked something, I'd have to say it's
just your imagination, as you suggest.

In response to some spam messages last year, I proposed closing
the list, and the consensus was that the subscribers would rather
have a little spam than give up their ability to easily manage
The maintenance of the SPUG-list is provided for free by the Perl
Mongers folks (pm.org), who handle all the Perl mongers lists
identically, so we'd have to run it ourselves to use listserv.
Personally, I think we need all the free help we can get, and
that the SPUG list is doing okay as it is, with no compelling
reason to change anything at this time.
