Also in follow up to my note on the SPAM article in last weeks NY TIMES
You remember how annoyed I was by a Spammer who complained that people were
overreacting and all that had to do was hit delete? Turns out I was not the
only one that got mad at that company. I only forwarded them some of MY Spam
in protest but apparently people who are a little better at this basically
wrecked the whole web site. Alas it may have been an overreaction because
due to a rather mysterious Anti-Spam center in Russia the ENTIRE server was
shut down and a number of legitimate companies lost their web sites & e mail
I suspect it will the last time a spammer allows themselves to be quoted by
name in the Times
