But the effect is the same as if they were really from gmail. Gmail users
can easily munge their address, but more and more folks are blocking gmail
period, rather than waste huge chunks of time.
Personally, I think you and the others who are having such a huge
problem with spam on rfc need an isp that has better spam catchers. I
get some spam here, but nothing I can't easily filter out. It's
simply not a problem for me.
Yabbut... you use gmail. Why, exactly? I much prefer a non-web based email
client; the web based ones are slow and clunky, IMHO. As for ISP's, it all
depends on what is available. Trust me, AT&T, Comcast, they aren't about
SPAM filters. Maybe you mean newsservers rather than ISP's? i.e. NIN.
They're very good at filtering out most SPAM but even they won't block an
I have no idea what you're talking about Jill. You know the ISP I use
contracts with Giganews for their basic usenet service, so ASAIC it's
my isp. I don't split hairs because I'm not paying an extra dime for
For news, I use Forte Agent 2.0 to filter the spam that giganews
misses and there is very little to filter. Most of my filters are set
to expire after 2 days of inactivity. Since most spam is hit and run,
I'm safe. If they reappear, I can make them disappear forever by
using key words. I'm a mature person and don't have anger issues, so
I am able to make my life easier w/o going off the deep end and
filtering entire domains.
BTW: My usenet filter is used mainly to filter out threads that don't
interest me and posters I'd rather not read in the first person
(unlike other's, it doesn't bother me to see them quoted).... my
method quiets the general noise of rfc.
I also have no idea what you mean by gmail being slow and clunky.
It's not slower or faster than anything else for me. I forward gmail
to my regular address and read it on my computer with Eudora. Nothing
is slow, nothing is clunky. It goes just as fast as my computer will
let it and there is very little SPAM between two ISPs and gmail.
Maybe it's because I believe in safe surfing. All I know is I get a
hell of a lot of email daily (34 just today) and I only get one or two
email SPAM messages weekly. Therefore, I have no filters set up for
email because I don't need it.
