The list is currently run by Tim Potter (and otherS) as it is hosted on

Tim is in town (AFAIK) and in the past when a few more spam have started
filtering through to the list he has simply tightened the spam filters a bit

Though if you are receving individual spam iut could indeed be from someone
spidering pages or something.
