Subject: [Full-Disclosure] lots and lots and lots of swen?

I'm just curious, has anybody else noticed a marked increase in the amount
of swen mailings received? When swen first appeared, I got about 4 or 5 of
them each day for about a week, then they tapered off to about once a week.
...until the last 60 hours, during which time I have receieved no less than
94 mails.

I took a look at several of the headers, and they all are pointed directly
at me and not getting forwarded from any mailing list servers. I don't use
this address for anything besides mailing lists, anyway... The distibution
between "critical update" type and "undeliverable message" type is about 50%
each way.

The only slightly-irregular thing I'd done with this address before the swen
flooding was a post to the debian-user mailing list (about 3 hours before
the deluge), but I don't really know if that relates because I've posted on
debian-user several times over the past couple months without this

And to think the first time I saw a swen mail I thought it was "clever".
