I get about 2-3 spams a week, no more than that usually. I try and
complain about the spam if the spammer comes from the UK, or an UK
address appears in the spam such as in received or the body such as
sites etc, just delete the ones that look as though they have come from
the US or elsewhere though, personally, I don't have much time and so
cannot be bothered by trying to get them shut down. Also, I have a lot
of filtering rules set up in Mercury and if a message looks as if it is
a spam it will bounce.
A Borg assimilated me, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.
