[chugalugTEST]* Good Morning Chugalugs!

2020-02-08 by: Michael Harrison

------------------------------------------------------
The new list server seems to be working very well with almost 1000 emails
sent with 13 test members. (Some of them are even real, like Adam, Lisa,
Don, Jeff, Kraus...Thank You!)

I've got a little code clean up and config work to do to make it go live,
but unless ya'll scream or something weird happens, I plan on moving
Chugalug's website and email service over the weekend. You might notice it,
might not. The main list has been quiet, or stuck (I keep restarting
mailman when the qrunner's hang...). Which for 221 opinionated Linux-ish
users, mostly means that it's been blowing chunks. As Melee has better (it
works) bounce detection I expect that the list will cull quickly on the new
server.

On of the differences of MELEE is that if mail comes from strange places
and does not see the word 'subscribe' in the subject, it ignores and
deletes it. No attempts to send a reply, no bounce loops, etc..  It'll have
a blacklist by IP and keyword soon as well as some moderator tools if we
ever need them.

And I think I've got a presentation for a future Chugalug meeting..

=============================================================== From: Adam Jimerson ------------------------------------------------------ That is great news, all the little kinks and annoyances that I can see already have been worked out. Although some of the more opinionated braves souls that has agreed to help test this list may say otherwise. A talk on the new setup and your migration steps would be interesting to hear.

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ Only thing I'm seeing is that messages aren't threading. I'm using gmail as a reader, and I see replies as separate emails, not threaded like the old list. Thanks for adding the subject tag, that helps filtering immensely. Jeff

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Just had an evil thought... What if we detected and stored the spammers email addresses, to display on a web page... We wouldn't be sending them spam, just making it easier for other spammers to.. ;) (Buhahahahaha.....evil laugh) ready have been worked out.

=============================================================== From: Mike Harrison ------------------------------------------------------ Good thought, I could make that an option. Personally the threading on gmail drives me nuts and I lose things. But no reason that some people could be threaded and some not. It'd just be detecting some header info and re-using it. as a reader, and I see replies as separate emails, not threaded like the o= ld list. lready have been worked out.
