Subject: Re: flood of empty messages
I am also getting the same flood of empty messages, and in addition, I have seen a few responses from other members of this listserver which I have received in duplicate. At first, I thought this might have been the work of some prank artist that broke into the listserver and caused it to misfire. It now looks like a software bug that somehow is linked to the time of day clock. Fortunately, this is a problem that is nothing more serious than a mild case of hemmorhoids. It could, however, be potentially devastating in that it might start running endlessly, ultimately choking the e-mail servers of everybody that is subscribing to this listserver. For this reason, I would like to recommend to the person in charge of the listserver to shut it down and try to ascertain if it has been infected by a virus or else has encountered something which acts as a trigger in making it generate null messages. Like others, I hate having to clean my mailbox each time I go out for new messages.
