What do you expect to be done?

The messages deleted from the list archive?
The related users banned?
Or...?

Matthew Paul Thomas (mpt) said : #18

Yes, both. This has been done hundreds of times in other parts of Launchpad; there’s no obvious reason for the mailing list to be an exception. <https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+questions?field.search_text=spam&field.sort=RELEVANCY&field.actions.search=Search&field.status=SOLVED>

Still a problem. (In addition, the statement “it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days” is false; reported bug 1017297 about that.)

I got IS to delete the offending messages (having finally found the documentation of how to do that) and I've suspended accounts where appropriate. Sorry it took so long.

Matthew Paul Thomas (mpt) said : #29

Verified. Thanks!
