Garth & Fellow Steamers,
I remember Garth posting on this earlier, and
meant to post to him about it off-list: but now I'll post to the
group since it is deemed worthy of discussion.
In almost three years, off and on, on the web I have yet to get
spammed. A great deal of that time has also been spent being
connected to Yahoo! ( I am no big fan of Yahoo! either.) I have
absolutely no idea why some of you are getting spammed, and I am
not. I am very careful about where I post my e-mail address, and to
who it is given.
Since the e-Groups/Yahoo! merger, I probably belong to 20+
different groups, and have yet to recieve one piece of spam. I use a
rather small, local, hometown ISP as opposed to some monstoer like
AOL. Maybe that makes a difference, I don't know.
