    Again.

    and again,

    and again,

    Christ on a crutch, if I can at least tag the sumbitches as read with
    Outhouse, you'd think MS could find a way to block them entirely.

    Hey Bill! Didja know that there are filters that can stop most of this crap?

    Just trying to help.

  4. crap?

    My SpamNet catches about 95% of them, but it's still a pain. I'm down to
    under 750/day now, however, from over 2,000/day a couple of weeks ago. It's
    given me an excuse to move all my subscriptions over to a more, permanent
    account anyway. Now if I quit my job (or get fired) I won't have to worry
    about anything important going to my work account. I'll terminate the
    account in a few weeks, once I'm fairly confident I've moved everything that
    needs to be moved. Of course, once I close the account, I'll get that
    e-mail from a long-lost friend who'll think I'm snubbing them.

    I still can't believe I'm getting the brunt of a virus that OTHER people
    got. I used to look down on people who "hid" behind a handle with no real
    e-mail address. It's easy to be a jerk when you can't be accountable. Now
    I have to think that someone like that is the author of the worm. I'm far
    too trusting.

    I've been munging my e-mail addies for quite a while, so I never got hit too
    bad. About 40-50 per day at the peak, and none on my home account. I use
    throwaways for anything on the web or usenet. When they get too much crap in
    their inboxes, they go away. Keeps the important accounts usable.

    Jeez, when I think of all the bandwidth that these asshats are burning up
    with Swen alone, it makes me think that the death penalty might be
    appropriate for virus/worm authors.

    BTW, I almost missed your post. I had Outhouse set to mark anything with
    'Microsoft' in the subject line as 'read'
