i have not seen any email from a@a.com come thru - i direct all junk mail
into a special mail box so that i can search it for things like this -
later i will see if i can enable filters for offending sites

you may not post to the linux-tr list unless you are a member (i hate spam
too) - any non-member posts were always kicked back to the postmaster - i
had the who_access set to 'list' - that is only people that are bonified
members of the list are able to get a whois from the list - i just changed
it to 'closed' - that means NOBODY has access to that information ;->

really, who in this list needs that information anyway

If your mother doesn't bother removing the Marlboro from between her lips
before telling the State Trooper to "kiss her ass"...
you might be a redneck.
