Thread Name: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
Subject: RE: BS: Spam and Porn - how to get rid of it?
For an overview of some current thinking on spam, some of you might want to look at the PC Mag Stop the Spam issue.
Note that the site does "feature" some popups, asks you to log in, and wants you to accept cookies - but I've not found them doing anything destructive with any of it. If you prefer to go in the "front door," its http://www.pcmag.com. Scroll down to "previous issues" in the left sidebar, and pick the Feb 25, 2003 issue.
The article cited has links to some other related stuff, including lab test results for a number of the best available filtering and blocking stuff. Unfortunately, some of the favorite software cited by our group in this thread does not actually show very good performance; although there apparently is nothing that does it all.
