A great deal has been done about it by most people on this list. I am not 
getting them because I use Microsoft OLP (Online Protection). Other spam filter 
software is available.

Re: sims' spotty dog

It looks to me like at least one of the original e-mails came from a 
server in Vietnam while Sims server seems to be located in Texas and his 
home is on an island. I'd say there is little Sims can do about it.


If his e-mail address were to be disabled, the spammers would simply 
spoof someone else's address. A solution might be to apply Spamcop 
filters, but many people, including those with OnRev accounts, are on 
shared servers and will often get blocked by Spamcop and still be unable 
to stop the spam.

A less presumptuous question might have been:

"What has been done about this?"

...for which the answer would be that I wrote Sims about it the other
day, and he replied to let me know he's written Heather about it.

The precise nature of the problem is unclear to me at this time, given
how frequently mail headers are forged, making it possible that
they're not coming from his account at all.

May take them a bit longer to sort out, but they're working on it.
