Which i doubt.  I've received four spam messages to my avr-gcc list
subscription address this morning.  Since i'm using that NNTP gateway
(using subscription addresses different from my default email address)
i can just see that this kind of spam protection doesn't work. ;-)

(As for the avr-libc-dev and avrdude mailing lists, i currently don't
use a news gateway.  Thus i won't notice whether any of the spam i'm
receiving in my regular mail has been caused by messages sent to these
lists.  It's just the avr-gcc and avr-chat lists where i get this
feature for free due to the different subscription addresses.)

Btw., i'm getting practically no spam at all these days in the
de.sci.electronics newsgroup (which is a fairly active one with nice
people and neat discussions).  It seems spammers don't spam Usenet
anymore the way they used to do years ago.  Perhaps time to create our
own alt.comp.avr.* hierarchy there? :-)
