I haven't seen any spam from plataleas plataleas. By "spamming", do
you mean that you got individually addressed messages duplicating
their list postings, or something else entirely?

Not sure what that empty line signifies.

I received messages on the topic given by the subject line, starting at
https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2019/01/msg00636.html
concerning the availability of various kernel versions. They were
answered by Dominik George who eventually suggested that the OP
check whether their mirror was up to date, and that seemed to be
appropriate action. Suddenly Ric Moore chimed in with an accusation
of "spamming", under the same subject:
https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2019/01/msg00714.html

I've already deleted all the substantive posts because I'm not that
deeply into package management, but the archives (starting at the
msg00636.html address) show the thread just as I saw it.
So I'm perplexed.

Cheers,
David.
