You are wrong, Jim. I now use my <> address solely for
spamming my fellow TLUGgers.

Sorry that some haruva bot chose my email address to use for spoofing,
Wayne. Consider yourself fortunate that you do not get mail for
<>, which I have to monitor on the off chance that some
one will actually need help with the list. It generates between 200-500
spams a day, about %15 of which are currently beating my SpamAssassin

Spam is a fact of life on today's Internet. Those of us who use email
heavily have to invest time on our filtering setup. I am sorry that TLUG
lacks the stealth technology necessary to avoid the spammers.
