53/173, non-scientific, in my folders, so roughly 1/3rd of spam getting
through the nets is addressed to the deprecated address.  I agree, kill
that alias.

Maybe my vision is skewed.  The only other open list I sub is
linux-raid@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  It has a little less average volume than
xfs, but only like one spam every few days gets through.
