Have fun at LISA ... remember to resurface to enjoy the sun, eat and drink well (Jolt cola doesn't count!), don't hack into anything you shouldn't , and don't forget to send us a Greek postcard....

Keesa wrote:I never buy anything from spam mails, and I only ever even open them to click on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom...it's not perfect (I have to unsubscribe from each list or group or whatever about once every couple of months) but it does seem to keep spam down. In addition, I'm careful about where I put my email address, and I avoid "Yes-you-may-give-my-email-to-select-group" check boxes like the plague.
As I said, not perfect, but it keeps them down.

However, the amount of spam in my yahoo mail has started to go up. I used to get one or two in my inbox a week, and now it's 3 or 4 a day.

People are exploring this idea: charge a nominal fee for each single delivery out, say one single cent. For the majority of us that'd be noise in our normal ISP bill. For spammers or big bulk mailing companies it would not.

But it's much more expensive here, a letter to anywhere in Europe will cost 55 cents, and the Euro is worth more than the dollar.
