And thank you Shriram for finding someone worthwhile to notify :).
It's somewhat ironic that when I check comp.lang.scheme.scsh today,
the bloom-beacon-relayed spam load was perhaps the worst I've ever
seen it. Almost as if the spammers could tell that the stable door was
being closed and decided to pump everything through it while they had
a chance *wry grin*.
If at first you don't succeed, try and try and try again. And then give up.
There's no point making a damn fool out of yourself.
