 We've had reports from someone who received mailing list subscription
 request confirmation emails from multiple lists on the lists.osgeo.org
 server on July 1st around 10:38pm. The requests were apparently
 originating from IP address and the person said he received
 1000's of mails from our server.

 Can someone with access to the logs of the lists server check if this IP
 address ( produced multiple subscription requests on July
 1st, presumably for spamming, and if yes then we could perhaps consider
 blocking it?

 You can contact me off-list if you need more details about the report that
 I received (I will not publish all details here).
