You're new to this email thing, right? If our system was sure it was SPAM it 
would have rejected the mail. But as spam doesn't declare itself, it happens.
And we can't really afford to have every mail read by a human before it's send
out to mailing lists.

And yes, the ratio is pretty bad for the kbabel list.

Greetings, Stephan
