I got also annoyed by this spam. As I did not see any Desktop Architects 
activity, I was already thinking about telling the admins to remove the 
list, or at least close it for postings. I only never came around to 
talk to the admins. I have CCed them now.

David, Dan, this mailing list of the inactive Desktop Architects group 
has turned to a spam collector (used by a commercial conference agency). 
Perhaps you better remove it and let only the archives available, to 
stop the spam.

David, Dan, perhaps you could also modify the Desktop-Architects-related 
pages on the LF web site telling that there is no activity any more and 
that the active desktop work happens on freedesktop.org.

Everyone agrees with that?
