I understand that Tristan is annoyed by such unnecessary spam, but as
Pablo states - that's not the nice way to tell so.
As this is not the first linkedin mail I stumbled upon on a Fedora
mailing list, I'd like to make a proposal:
Why not filter these mails with mailman already before they get through
to us recipients?
Maybe some of you aren't very well versed with the English language.
I did not insult or was rude to Gent, in fact, we British are very
touchy in detecting rudeness. As to my crap remark, google is CRAP.
That is my opinion and I stand by it. I also find LinkedIn, Facebook,
and all copycats crap.
And no, I was going to ignore what was said earlier, but if people keep
on about how they perceived that I was rude to somebody, I feel the need
Further, from the email headers, it is clear Gent misconfigured
something, probably importing address books from a third party, probably
Joerg, we should probably just block all mails from the linkedin SMTPs.
I do not see why this wouldnt be possible now, especially since we run
our own servers handling the mailing lists now. Maybe opening a ticket
with regards to this, is the answer. Probably will also stop the
malicious spam bots that invite to lists on purpose, so they can spam
1000s or spam as the people who fall victim that to that herding attack.
