Don't you all just love this new crap the spammers are pulling? They
include a "paragraph" full of random words at the end of their email, to
try and evade spam filters. They truly are the most random conglomeration
of words I've ever seen. Until today. The following, while still random,
actually has some verbs where verbs should be and some nouns where nouns
should be. Amazing how the spammers took an English class.

And figure out the dark side of her prime minister.Duane and I took fruit
cake defined by guardian angel (with midwife from particle accelerator,
power drill about.mirror related to food stamp leaves, and fighter pilot
about asteroid earns frequent flier miles; however, cough syrup defined by
mating ritual require assistance from..Furthermore, living with mating
ritual panics, and prime minister behind dance with toward cab driver.

The trick to flying is, learning how to throw yourself at the ground... and

This makes interesting reading :

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/3458457.stm

I'm having a fair degree of success at the moment using Mailwasher
(www.mailwasher.net) - it allows you to build your own set of rules
and filters which I find is a very useful feature.

Well worth looking at.

I don't know what we have here at work, but our network admin doesn't keep
it running, so every morning I have 10 or so spams. No big deal, AFAIC, but
it does tie up bandwidth, and annoy the hell out of end users. (I've been
on his case to either get a *real* spam filtering system or at least leave
this one turned on - to no avail so far). Anyways, do you know how much
spam I get at my hotmail account? None. I use *no* filters of any sort, but
hotmail must have one hell of a filtering system. I only get a few messages
a day to my hotmail account, despite having it for over 6 years. I used to
get quite a bit, but in the last 6 months or so, spam has stopped. I
haven't gotten a spam in a few months. I did spend about a month sending
abuse reports to every ISP that a spam originated from, so maybe that has
something to do with it. But, right now, I'm considering making my hotmail
account my "real" email account again, not one I use for mailing lists and
newsgroup contact. No spam is great!
