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 have enjoyed the computer knowledge on the thread and have done a lot of local work for those who still cross themselves at the thought of "oh my god! he's going to open it!" However, I don't know that I've ever actually seen this thing called SPAM. I have a Pakistani anti-viral system ( "go to the source" )and my ISP, a NET org, washes all e-mail. Still, I do get at least one advert for porn each day from seemingly good addresses. Damn, no pictures, though. just "Click Here!!" yeah sure, *snort*. I often wonder where they get a mailing list, or if there is an expense involved for "advertising?" No damage has been done to involve EPIC but it more than an auto flyer in the post (hmmm, nice bumpers there), these are essentially properly enveloped and stamped. Does anyone see a need for "second class mail" on the Net?
