My take on this is that archive.org is still the best option. The fact that they have been overtaken by spam means they need a spring-cleaning. If enough people write in with complaints, I am sure they will comply as best they can. Any other public site is bound to fall victim as well - after all, it *is* the internet. For a perpetually free-from-spam site, you may need to look for one that requires logins, or even paid registrations or subscriptions but that would certainly limit your audience significantly. A subscription site like ARSC would be a good option, if they were interested in setting up an online archive site for members. Tim S.
