Subject: RE: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
I'm gonna say something that a lot of folks probably don't wanna hear.
America Online really does a good job of blocking spam.
I know it's politically incorrect to say anything nice about mega-corporations, but it's true. In the year that I've had AOL I've gotten less than five pieces of email spam. I was getting some of those "instant message" spams for a while, but I've blocked them now (with AOL's help).
Now, the only people that send me bothersome messages of any kind are AOL themselves with their never-ending "special offers".
