Although James replies in a positive way and I do appreciate anyone who fights spam (in a decent way ;-), this is hardly "real" spam. James posted to this group without knowing the charter, he got directed to it and replies to that ( I've done the same in the past ). Big deal. This hardly is spam.
Let me explain why: it's not "bulk", its targetted messaging.
Spam? Fight the damn "MI5" spammer who posted his tens of messages coming from different e-mail addresses all over the public newsgroups!
But the real spam is much harder to fight :-(
