Which messages in the February 2016 archive are spam?
We get spam tickets all the time; it didn't just start in February 2016.
Removing spam from a pipermail archive is not very easy. One has to edit the mbox file to remove each spam message manually, then regenerate the HTML files from the mbox file. Doing this causes mailing list messages to be renumbered, breaking old links to those messages.
