The email address this list goes to gets very little spam, thanks to
some amount of care on my part.
Secondly, I have this list delivered as a digest, which makes it much
harder to identify as spam and delete immediately without reading it.
In fact, mailing lists in general are automatically an 'in band' channel
for me, so spam on any of them is much more noticeable and annoying than
it is anywhere else.
