Mailing List Spam

I run a few mailing lists which have seasonal or sporadic usage. A side 
effect of running these things is that the lists collect spam which ends 
up in my list administrator's mailbox. All very normal and boring.

But I am starting to notice a pattern which seems to suggest that when a 
list is quiet (such a hockey club's list during the summer months when 
there is nearly no traffic) - there is nearly no spam. As traffic builds 
up, the level of attempted spam increases.

Is it just me? Is it a coincidence? Has anyone else noticed something
