Hey all,

Just a thought or two on spam.

It's been my experience that you should never reply to spam, even if it
is to be "removed from the list".  By replying, you verify to the sender
that your address is a good one and you are someone who responds to spam
- positive or negative does not matter - the fact that you read the spam
and did something with it is all they care about - thus making your
address more valuable when they sell their list to other spammers.  The
end result being you will recieve more, not less spam.

Incidently, I too recieved Rizal's rant, as well as the tip sheet and
did not sign up for either one.

hope this helps.

Rick
