a shame cause I remember there being good stuff in here.

I feel sorry for Marion and other legitimate posters who have to use GG.

post garbage or other mutts who can't pass up replying to them. *With a

with the letters RBM? *That would distinguish the real stuff from the spam
and crossposters. *Anyone with a search feature could find it with
relative ease.

There is no bulletproof solution to spam. I am a network
administrator. One of my guys spends a lot of time configuring our
corporate gateway to block spam and viruses, but never EVER block
legit email. It is like dancing on a knife edge.
