Well, in their never ending quest to irritate us spammers have found a new way to abuse Yahoo groups: they register as members and then add their spam to the files section so that a notice about the new file is sent to everyone getting around the moderator. Actually, that tactic is not needed here since this list is not moderated but it seems that they can't be bothered to check that.
I considered changing the subscription policy to "moderated" but after reviewing the members list I see that it would be too hard to guess who is a spammer and who isn't.
So the alternative was to set the files section of our group to "moderated" since it hasn't been such a popular feature (only one real file uploaded since 1998).
