Why not just hit the delete key?
I mean I get alot of spam and it takes all of 1 second to hit the
delete key... sometimes there is too much technology... spam filters
are a good example in my opinion... I mean sure you can filter out bad
words and and exe's, vbs's but that is all I limit my spam filter
to... so I get maybe 20-30 spam emails a day... that is about 1 minute
of my time to hit the delete key... just my 2 cents...
