Rails List: Is spam normal?

Hey guys, I’m kind of a read-only member of the list as of late and
I’ve not been on the list at all too long but I’m curious… is it
normal for this list to get spam? Some other lists I’m a member of
seem to bee pretty strict about it & this is the only one I’ve gotten
spam through. Of course this is the only one hosted as a Google
groups so perhaps that’s the reason.

Any good way to block/filter it on my end (OS X Maill.app)?

Thanks for any tips,

Unfortunately, yes. It’s brought up every couple weeks or so, but it
seems to be the state of the list.

The Rails’ lists (rubyonrails-talk & rails-core) are a lot different
in that respect than the other lists I’m on as well.

I’m quite happy with SpamSieve (well, as happy as one with spam can
be). Others have posted lists of email addresses which they’ve used
to filter the list, but I haven’t had to do that.

Funny, I was just looking at SpamSieve this morning. Maybe I’ll give
it a shot.
Thanks.
