Tim,

That's not the point.  The point is, plain and simple, spamming stinks.
Sure it's easy to delete, but I shouldn't have got it, at least at my work
email, in the first place.  I have not signed ANYWHERE with this email
address except this list.  I know David doesn't sell the emails, so that
means they mined them (most likely from the archives), no matter if it's
search400.com or the400group (6 of one, half a dozen..).  I have found
myself receiving more spam each day to this email address, which means a lot
of people are farming the archives.

David, is it possible to blank out the emails in the archive?  Or at least
replace the @ with a * or "at" or something?  That may be a good solution.

I could start spamming everyone on the list too for my shareware, but I
choose to take other routes.  If one of my tools will help someone, I post
it on this list as a possible solution, or privately to them.  Or, I talk
about it in an article in MC or Showcase (BTW - That showcase one should be
out in the November issue of SC <bg>).

Anyhow, I'm sure that the point has been made, and the spammers definatley
know about it.
