Two minor points to note:
1) the email@example.com address is no longer mine;
I escaped from BMC last January.
2) the MIBs list is on ops.ietf.org, which is adminstered separately
from the ietf.org lists
BTW, I've found blocking multipart MIME and HTML to be a very
simple and effective way to block spam on IETF WG lists, with
very few false positives to approve manually.
