    I discontinued several lists - including der spiegel - before i went on vacation. I also disconnected my cable.

    I noted when I returned that I had no spam - even tho' before vacation I had received at least 10 solicitations per day for home loans/viagra/bank accounts/lost relatives from nigeria.

    About a week after I returned,  I reinstated Der Spiegel, and immediately started getting spam from the usual suspects. Lightbulb!

    I disconnected from Der Speigel again, and no more spam...

    I wonder how often spammers follow / hijack emails from such lists?  I assume that was what was happening.

    in any case, Der Spiegel's not worth it!
