Yes, it's relatively easy to mask your IP address for one-way communication. It works as long as whatever you're doing doesn't require return communication from the server.

Unfortunately, phpBB is currently programmed so that once you're signed on it's possible to post a message without requiring any return communication from the server.

My Yahoo! egroup is set to allow anyone to post, so people who don't want to give Yahoo! a ton of info don't have to.

The spammers are hitting me at 1-2 per day, but I can just see this progressing to dozens, in which case, I'll have to disable that.

I'm surprised you're only getting 1 or 2 a day with an open Yahoo group. Maybe Yahoo is getting better at cracking down on the screwballs.

Anyone can post, but I have to approve them before they go to the list. A wide-open group would have zillions!
