To clarify, after you have responded _once_ by saying you are not a spammer, the antispam program leaves you alone after that. Nonetheless, it is a nuisance to ask potentially hundreds of people to send you that message, particularly since people will often be afraid they are falling into some sort of trap. I can see the purpose behind such a program but people who have it should not sign up for listserves, especially when a digest alternative is available. If Notre Dame adopted such a program today, I am sure our computing office would have at least 100 complaints by tomorrow!
