Interestingly enough, we did have a spate of actual spam masquerading
as coming form the clue-tech list a few weeks ago. When I flagged
these as spam, gmail did not flag normal clue-tech mails as spam. So,
the gmail filters are considerably more complex and capable than one
might think, and I still don't understand the occasional false
positives for the blug lists.
