    :(FYI...Like it or not (mostly, NOT), we are going to have to deal with SPAM. This is a problem that is not going to go away anytime soon.

    (See "maps") - "Spam volume in the U.S. is growing exponentially, and the threat has spread across the globe. Unfortunately, legislation alone cannot curb this problem: 50% of attacks are generated outside the U.S. and are not covered by U.S. laws; and international laws are hard to enforce."
