Hi Jake (and others),

I have 4 addresses. The only one that receives spam is the one used for
the A-list. In most of the spam headers, the A-list is the relay used to
hit me (and all of you, too). Most of those guys are rookies.

Spam is no real big deal for me. I don't read email on line, so I can't
be automatically switched to their site or enrolled in their scheme. I
delete any potentially executable attachments, so that doesn't work
either. All that is left is that silly letter about money in some African
bank. Squashing them only requires hitting the delete key, so they're
just a minor inconvenience.

What is more frustrating is that access to the A-list is easy to control
and most, if not all, of the spam could be prevented with just a few key
