I use rules in my local.cf that are the same as bigevil.  My "Blammo"
rules wax a spam with 20 points.  I realize 7 would do it, but I get
sick pleasure out of giving them 20.  Then I saw that Chris is doing
basically the same thing.  (only in manic hyperdrive).  So I got lazy
and now just download his work and use that.  I yank out the ones that I
donít agree with.  (few)  This file he maintains takes an awful lot of
time, I know.  I would just suggest that anyone who uses it, take the
time to look through the thing and remove the domains that they consider
not spam, in between, or whatever...  If I sound harsh, I donít intend
to be.  I just think maybe people donít realize how much of Chris' time
that file takes up as it is.  

How-ev-uh....  your suggestion is good!  So maybe someone could take
chris' file, take it a step further (after each update) and split it
into two files.  (but even that would be someones opinion...what is ham
to me may be spam to you.  Who knows, I might have a thing for
kangaroos)  Then people could have a choice.

Jennifer (will soon get my heart back into this war)
