Well, I would leave that up to the discretion of the W3C's Data Activity Lead.

Personally, I think it's advantageous for the following reason: it makes clear to mailing list recipients that the spam message was appropriately dealt with, which is important to retain recipients who don't like spam (I'm thinking most don't). Speaking for myself, I don't get any kind of "smug" satisfaction from it (as implied by Paul), rather a confirmation that there's a good spam policy in place.

Couldn't the response be made to the individuals spamming rather than the list as a whole?

I don't see how Phil's comments qualify as "snarky", "rude" or "smug". He's simply vocalizing the current W3C spam-policy (established by majority vote of people *on this list*) that should have been put in place a long time ago. Everyone was duly notified of this, and it is clearly indicated on the mailinglist page<https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-lod/> - at least, for people who take the effort to have a look at it (or, perish the thought, register to the mailing list!) instead of just doing a drive-by-shooting of CFPs.

I've been watching you from the sidelines be the sole vocal arbiter on the matter of CFP and I really don't understand the need you have to be unprofessional, rude, and snarky each and every time. This does nothing in my opinion but create an atmosphere of smug satisfaction for those who agree with you and dread for those who don't.
