    Its been a bit quiet the last couple of days. Usually when I check my
    email in the morning I have around 40-60 spam messages and during the
    day I get plenty more.

    I had 5 this morning and the same yesterday.

    I'm hoping either a) Slingshot have got some spam-killing processes in
    place, or b) the Spammers are taking a break

    I hope its not c) something wrong with Slingshots mail server as I
    also notice some regular emails (e.g. from Trademe and the such)
    aren't getting through either (which could be at Trademes end).

    Maybe they have all caught the lastest worm/virus and they are taking
    time to clear their systems.

    I did get a spam from the "canary islands" saying how much money there
    was for me there. When I told the wanker I had forwarded his email to
    the FBI internet fraud center http://www.ifccfbi.gov/index.asp he became
    highly abusive....how dare I wreck his legtimate scam....
    More to the point, he was also informed that because he had read the
    email the return address was now verified and that the FBI would be able
    to use this to identify his ISP and then trace via phone records his
    place of residence, so he should expect to either have a visit soon or
    take care to watch for cars with tinted windows....rotflmao
