I suppose if one actually knew, well, who knows? The CoV mailing list may
be accessible by these bots, maybe not. At any rate, your email address
is, by just about any sort of search and find bot.

Your ISP may or may not be attempting a first-strike/pre-emptive blockade
of spamming sites- mine is- but even then, the engines of furtive
commerce have always toiled ceaselessly.

It's something I have come to learn to live with, and ignore, like Hanson.
