Hi Olivier,

Thanks for your help. 

I think as the community mailing lists grow it would be valuable to have some kind of report abuse link with a webhook, similar to how unsubscribe, etc. is done in mailchimp/mandrill. A link triggering a red flag somewhere would be valuable to report serial abusers of the lists.

I have seen an increase in people using the mailing lists as a way to gather a sales database for them to cold call/email, and as the email addresses of the end recipient are visible to the public I think it is only a matter of time before someone with malicious intent begins to harvest email addresses in the lists for spam purposes later.

The mailing lists are an incredibly valuable tool for me as are the forums, I am just concerned that they will be more heavily abused (like the forum spam issues previously) once the numbers start to grow. I think it would be valuable to mask the sender's actual email address, and provide something like mandrill's webhooks for reporting abuse,etc, and perhaps a PM link to allow a private message to be sent to the sender of the email.

My guess is that he subscribed by mistake, so I unsubscribed him after his last 
message earlier.
