That's the way I read mail - just fecking deal with it.  I don't gripe about
people reading messages sequentially or in alphabetical order.

Indeed.  And when said idiots offer up solutions, such as spam filtering
software, you blow it off.

yeah, me - get some fecking manners and insult me, aardvark, Garrett, and
Elfur offlist.  We are all people who include the posters email address in
the body of the reply.  But I reckon your venom was directed specifically at
me, but you decided not to just come out and say it.  An attempt at faux
politeness?  Or just cowardice?  You tell me.

Spam is now a fact of life.  You'll get it whether you like it or not.  Do
you bleat like this every time you get junk mail through your letterbox?  I
don't.  I just stick it in the bin and get the hell on with my life instead
of bleating.
