I've noticed a particular SPAM email has been routed through linux-kernel
at least 6 to 8 times now.

No doubt, it's really pissing me off too. I've gone after every relay
involved so far, though it's probably fruitless because they're different
each time. It appears the true source of the messages is UUNet, which
means it'll never get dealt with from the outside. If the list is not
already closed to subscribers, closing it might help. Failing that, maybe
we need a filter that checks each message for an overabundance of the words
"marketing" and "bulk email sofware" ;)

What comments do the list owners have?
