Looks like it's time for another announcement on how to deal with

I already put this guy in the spam filters, he won't be making it
through again.  There's no need, in general, to reply to the list to
"deal with" spam.  If you notice a high level of leakage, let a Pidgin
developer know so we can deal with it --- but note that almost all of
the "list" spam I get doesn't actually pass through lists on its way
to my inbox.  I believe spammers put list addresses in the To/Cc, but
send the mail directly, to try to defeat spam filters.  You can
determine if a spam actually passed through the list (as this one did)
by consulting the headers.
