Thread Name: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
Subject: RE: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
I didn't have a problem with spam when I had my old EAGLE-PC, a two-floppy (the 5+" floppies) 8088. No internet connection. Then there was the Packard Bell 486, pretty darned impressive in it's day, and it lasted a long time (many of us in the family would argue that it was around FAR too long). That had a rudimentary 2500 baud (is that how slow they were?) modem. No spam back then. I didn't even encounter much in the way of spam when I was using my Pentium 133mhz Acer laptop. It's with the newest computer in the last couple of years that I've been swamped by it.
(How do you like that thread drift, all the while integrating the original subject.)
