Spam – Good News, Bad News, and SOS

Various news on the spam front. The minor good news is that I got another cheerful note from the folks at Project Honeypot telling me this site has helped indentify another spambot. The bad news is that I got a couple dozen spam messages in my inbox this morning that had made it through the maze of blacklists I’m using.

But I can’t resist just a little brag.

And ultimately, I couldn’t pick just one.
