qalam and many other yahoo groups have just been penetrated by a spambot. DO NOT mark these messages as spam, or your system will think all qalam messages are spam.

Seshat, DO NOT send messages back to the spambot complaining about the spam -- that will tell it that it has discovered a live target and encourage it to continue. If there is some way of contacting the yahoo company, you can let it know that your group has been victimized.
