This makes it all clear...

I expressed my feeling today already: I unsubscribed from *every* RIPE ML
immediately to protect me from this spam flood. At least I tried - a robot
email answer pointed me to a web site for unsubscribing. I did not know that
irrtolset had been transferred to ISC, the last couple of weeks I had almost
no time for reading MLs (right now I do, it's 11pm here).
To make it clear: if posting to a ML for non-members is possible, then this
ML is the very first one I unsubscribe from. Which I did a minute ago.
