Thanks, that is on my home page, and I can thus fix that.  Thank you for
pointing this out.

Ah well, I didn't know that the mailing list is mirrored to Usenet.
That probably explains why I have gotten some spam since last summer.
Not much, maybe one or two messages per day, without any filter.

Some years ago, I accidentally filed one or two Debian bug reports
from a rarely used address.  I had to close down that address, because
it started getting dozens of spam messages per day.
