Ahhhh, this explains why some of my list are just missing which made me
a bit curious. I just forgot updatenames.py.

What would you call those mails at
from author 'akavanagh at icr.ac.uk' ?
At this time this author became relevant in the statistics - perhaps
today it is not any more... But perhaps we just ignore this for the

It is always an interesting thing to
SELECT name, email_addr, subject from listarchives;
and watch out for thing which are just "strange". For instance a quick shot
can be done via
SELECT name, email_addr, subject from listarchives where length(name) > 30;
and you immediately see further spam (mixed with valid postings). It might
also be a good idea to inspect the log files on blends.d.n.
