Bill: Unfortunately, there are not many choices about the issue.
Whereas my spam filters eliminate those messages coming to
my inbox, I didn't realize that others would still receive them.

The problem was that although someone not in the group can *not*
email PIRA-chat, if they *join*, they can then post crap.

The occasional spammer does that.

Erich and I both have banned those addresses a.s.a.p.

I wanted to leave the group open so all could join, but now
have changed it to invite only.

If someone could go to the page who's not on PIRA-chat and
test it for me, that it mails out the invite request to the managers
Erich and I.
