Of course. Can you email me privately who it was and I will send them 
an email expressing my grave displeasure? I tried browsing the Nov 
archive myself but couldn't find the culprit (and downloading the 
full archive of 2Mb would take me some time and centimos).

I've already lost s_fsfeurope to spammers, I really don't want to 
have to move to s_fsfeurope3 :(
