good thing you can't write a filter for each piece of junk mail you get in
your USPS mail box.
Hitting a key combination to delete an email and then every so often
purging my system (empting the trash) is still easier than taking the mail
out of my USPS mail box and sorting thru it to remove the junk and
eventually having to take out the garbage or later sort thru it.
But if you could write a filter for your USPS mail box, how many filters
would you have today, Carl?
Besides, with the DRM and such being thrust upon us, there are perhaps
more serious things to be concerned about. Like where are the laws to
protect rights to be innovative and creative.
Or how are Rebolers going to distribute their programs?
And likewise ...DRM.....that aught to cause a reduction in spam.... :)
