    Do you hate spam? Do you hope he wins?

    The same thing can be done about unwanted faxes. The thing is that with email there are spam programs and my ISP has a good one which catches between 50 and 100 a day for me.

    Yes.


    A link to the article is necessary in order to know background information before I could comment.

    I survived on Spam for many years. Oh....You're not talking about that mystery meat that comes in the little cans. :smilewinkgrin:

    My email gets hit with spam every once in a while. Right now my "Blocker Sender" total is nearing 750.

    No, I hope he loses. My business has been the victim of a couple of frivolous lawsuits, which I settled before going to trial. I would have clearly won both cases but the cost of continuing would have far exceeded the settlement amount. I basically paid the plaintiffs "go away money."

    This guy is milking the system.
