[filmscanners] Re: spam magnet



I can't directly help you with your request, but I can tell you that as
someone who has several of my email addresses out there in the public,
that the last few months things have gone absolutely crazy with spam.  I
do not directly publish my email address in a normally readable format,
but a particularly annoying troll on one newsgroup I reply a great deal
to, decided to "out" my email address and all heck broke loose.  SO much
so that the forwarding service I use was blocked by my ISP as a major
spam source, and it too 4 weeks to straighten it out.

Spam is going to destroy text communications on line if some heavy
hammers don't start coming down.  I know it is huge business, and some
countries will never do anything to thwart "entrepreneurship", but this
is getting insane.  In that one account I am averaging over 300 spam
emails a day now, and if it were not for the spam filters I have built
plus the one provided by my ISP, I could not provide the on-line
services I do.

Things are truly out of control now with spam.  I don't know who
responds to spam, such that it is even worth generating, but obviously
enough people do to make it "worthwhile" to distribute.

It's a real mess...
