Looking at the mail headers, it seemed that this was sent to the
ietf-charsets list and not the wg-i18n list directly. (wg-i18n is a member
of this list, I guess?) This is the same for all the previous abuses,

I sent a forged message from 'ietf-charsets' last week with a "REMOVE ALL",
as suggested in the message(s) but this has obviously not worked. I have
tried also contacting postmaster but to no avail. seems that the only option left now is to mail-bomb them and see how
they like it :-(
