    "Literally there's a whole department almost that takes care of it," he
    said.

    "But he said only about 10 e-mails a day made it through to his inbox,
    because of anti-spam technology that filters the messages."

    Um, so Bill Gates' "anti-spam technology" is "almost a whole department
    that takes care of it?"

    What am I missing here?

    "At the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos in January, Mr Gates
    predicted that technology would make spam "a thing of the past" within
    two years."

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Isn't this the same guy who said 64k of ram
    ought to be enough for anybody?

    The reasons for censoring Britt Ekland's erotic dancing in the room
    next to Edward Woodward in the Inn, in the film "The Wicker Man" are
    clear to me - after all, decency is perhaps the single most important
    factor to be considered in film-making. Too many film-makers
    concentrate on the way people think and feel and not, unfortunately,
    on how people *should* feel and think.
    I have seen both versions of the film, both with and without the
    lascivious Miss Ekland's performance, and I feel moved to ask you,
    does burning a virgin in a large wooden contraption actually improve
    crop yields, and is this not a better approach than employing the
    methods of genetic modification?
