          i think i shat that idea into SluBlu's outhouse a few weeks back...

          BTW:

          Did you hear the one about SluBlu...?


          ...HE NEEDED THE MONEY! OH!
          . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

            I've got Norton AntiSpam. Works wonders, and only cost me $40 bucks at one time.

            I have no use for an email stamp tax.

              If I had to choose between Spam or PAYING for e-mail, then hit me with all the spam you've got.

              I've noticed far less spam popping up in my e-mail the last few weeks anyway.



              I probably shouldn't have said that.......

                    Its really not hard, folks...

                    Create multiple email accounts: one for people you know that should have it and one for site registrations and such....

                    I don't have much probs anyway.....sure, I hafta hit the delete button, but you know what's spam and what isn't...

                    I guess Bill needs more money....

                      Thats what I do.

                      Maybe Gates looked at the wealthiest people in the world list.

                        I just bought Norton Internet Security.

                        You get your anti-virus, forewall, parental control, pop-up blocker, and anti-spam software for $40 bucks.

                        Not to mention 1 year of virus/firewall definition updates which would cost about $20 apiece to renew.

                          real tough to do a quick bulk deletion. JackSparrow got it right, you know what is and isn't junk immediately. It's like bulk rate mail, you can tell by looking at the "stamp" whether you plan on chucking it or looking at it.
