    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.

    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!

    Douglas Adams has to be one of the funniest writers I have ever read.



    "In the beginning the Universe was created.
    This had made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad
    move.



    Many races believe that it was created by some sort of god, though the
    Jatravartid people of Viltvodle VI believe that the entire Universe was in
    fact sneezed out of the nose of a being called the Great Green Arkleseizure.


    The Jatravartid, who lived in perpetual fear of the time they call The
    Coming of the Great White Handkerchief, are small blue creatures with more
    than fifty arms each, who are therefor unique in being the only race in
    history to have invented the aerosol deodorant before the wheel."

    And to expand upon DA's theorems, and for your amusement:

    "for those of you NOT fully up to date on
    physics...

    The Universe has been expanding for many years, yet the total number of
    cluons has remained constatnt, generating a net decrease in specific cluon
    density throughout the universe. This, coupled with the natural decay of
    cluons, has caused an overall cluon deficit.

    Now, in an area of particularly low specific cluon density (Redmond.
    wa.us) an organization was formed by the clueless to prey on other
    clueless people. This has had two surprising effects.

    One, because this organization generates on the order of 6.023E10+23
    Ll/cc, so much it is actually responsible for reversing the expanding
    universe. Eventually it will suck everything in and the universe will
    end.

    Normally this would be a good thing.

    However, the second effect is the generation of anti-cluons, also known as
    bogons in this forum. When a cluon and a bogon meet you are left with a
    moron and a lot of leftover energy (usually flying body parts). As the
    universe, and it's associated cluons, is drawn into this high bogon field
    we have an ever increasing amount of morons and excess energy, which
    causes global warming.

    So, as you can see the only solution is to get rid of the source of both
    the high Ll and bogon field. I'm afraid it may be too late." ---Shmuel

    Cluons? WHEW! That's nothin'. If you had said Klingons then we would really

    We use mailsweeper here. Works good- messages get caught at server.
    We've had over 1000 messages (pain in the ass tog o through, make sure
    there's no legit messages) in one day! Virus city- about 500 end users.

    I get about 10 junk mail in my hotmail account, over 300 in my yahoo
    (yes, DAILY). They get filtered to the junk mail folder, but it still
    takes up my desperately needed space, so I have to go delete them
    manualy. Grrrr.

    What kind of admin do you HAVE over there? As an MCSE, wouldn't that
    make you over qualified for the admin position ? *grins*

    Re: Spam tactics

    It is known that there is an infinite number of worlds, but that not every
    one is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited
    worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as
    makes no odds, so if every planet in the Universe has a population of zero
    then the entire population of the Universe must also be zero, and any people
    you may actually meet from time to time are merely the products of a
    deranged imagination.

    The Bistromathic Drive is a wonderful new method of crossing vast
    interstellar distances without all that dangerous mucking about with
    Improbability Factors.

    Bistromathics itself is simply a revolutionary new way of understanding
    the behavior of numbers. Just as Einstein observed that space was not an
    absolute but depended on the observer's movement in space, and that time was
    not an absolute, but depended on the observer's movement in time, so it is
    now realized that numbers are not absolute, but depend on the observer's
    movement in restaurants.

    The first nonabsolute number is the number of people for whom the table is
    reserved. This will vary during the course of the first three telephone
    calls to the restaurant, and then bear no apparent relation to the number of
    people who actually turn up, or to the number of people who subsequently
    join them after the show / match / party / gig, or to the number of people
    who leave when they see who else has turned up.

    The second nonabsolute number is the given time of arrival, which is now
    known to be one of those most bizarre of mathematical concepts, a
    recipriversexcluson, a number whose existence can only be defined as being
    anything other than itself. In other words, the given time of arrival is the
    one moment of time at which it is impossible that any member of the party
    will arrive. Recipriversexclusons now play a vital part in many branches of
    math, including statistics and accountancy and also form the basic equations
    used to engineer the Somebody Else's Problem field.

    The third and most mysterious piece of nonabsoIluteness of all lies in the
    relationship between the number of items on the check, the cost of each
    item, the number of people at the table and what they are each prepared to
    pay for (the number of people who have actually brought any money is only a
    subphenomenon in this field).

    The baffling discrepancies that used to occur at this point remained
    uninvestigated for centuries simply because no one took them seriously. They
    were at the time put down to such things as politeness, rudeness, meanness,
    flashiness, tiredness, emotionality or the lateness of the hour, and
    completely forgotten about on the following morning. They were never tested
    under laboratory conditions, of course, because they never occurred in
    laboratories-- not in reputable laboratories at least.

    And so it was only with the advent of pocket computers that the startling
    truth became finally apparent, and it was this:

    Numbers written on restaurant checks within the confines of restaurants do
    not follow the same mathematical laws as numbers written on any other pieces
    of paper in any other parts of the Universe.

    This single statement took the scientific world by storm. It completely
    revolutionized it. So many mathematical conferences got held in such good
    restaurants that many of the finest minds of a generation died of obesity
    and heart failure and the science of math was put back by years.

    Slowly, however, the implications of the idea began to be understood. To
    begin with it had been too stark, too crazy, too much like what the man in
    the street would have said "Oh, yes, I could have told you that." Then some
    phrases like "Interactive Subjectivity Frameworks" were invented, and
    everybody was able to relax and get on with it.

    The small groups of monks who had taken up hanging around the major
    research institutes singing strange chants to the effect that the Universe
    was only a figment of its own imagination were eventually given a street
    theater grant and went away.
