I hadn't gotten much spam myself until recently, and now I've suddenly 
been getting a ton of it in the past few weeks. I'm concerned that this
might represent a tidal wave of new spam that could choke the server, 
or possibly spammers getting more clever and perhaps finding ways to 
bypass mailman's protections.
