that is a better way of putting it. Clever but lazy. I like that. Mind if I file off the serial numbers?

but in terms of what is worth it, when it becomes worth it, they would be far better served to sit on the list, sniff addresses of public posters and then forge their way onto the list using those addresses. 2 in 1. Denial of reputation as well as spamming the entire list. (Only slightly tongue in cheek)

according to Berry Schein (president of the world), spam has climbed approximately 70 percent in the last year. the only time I noticed the increase is when I do some statistics on the spam dumpster. Then I noticed I wait forever as Linux beats the disk into a pulp going after all the messages.

Fortunately it is easy to add legitimate
senders like Eric by just checking a box when
approving a post.
