[spam snipped]

Unfortunately this has always been a problem for us, when putting up the
archives on the website. The system is configured so that none of the
posters details, aside from the name, are put onto the page. This doesn't
cover the contents of the message.

We're putting together a new archive system at the moment, which finally,
will include a decent search engine. Like they say in the Grolsch ads...you
can't rush these things...

In the meantime, if anyone is receiving spam from people that looks like
they're using archives here, we're happy to help fight it however we can.
