Cleaning spam from the debian-women list

Debian mailing list server includes a working toolset to actually remove spam from the mailing list archives. Many Debian sub-projects have started a coordinated effort to clean out their mailing lists.

This page is intended to coordinate the reporting of spam in the archive for the debian-women list.

What's needed is that a few people go through the list archive for every month and consistently report all spam that they see. That should get the messages listed for the next stage, the review by DDs of reported spam, and their eventual removal.

Please try to be as thorough as possible: try to report all spam, but also try not to report mails that are not spam. In general spam is fairly easy to recognize from the subject of the messages, so let's start there: just go through the thread index for a month, select suspicious messages, report them, and then either return to the index (using "back" two times) or go to the next message (using the "thread next" link).

Spam needs to be reported by multiple people. But to avoid too many people doing the same months, please register in the table below which months you've checked. Let's start with the most recent years.

/!\ A message currently must have 5 reports to pass to the review stage.

/!\ The batch job that makes reported posts available for review and removes posts classified as spam runs only once a week (Sundays).

Everything before 2013 was reviewed by at least 5 people.
