12/1    spamassassin newbie question.  I did "spamassassin -r < foo" where
        foo is a spam msg that got through.  I get this error msg:
        "Warning, unable to report spam"
        And nothing seems to be changed in ~/.spamassassin files.  Is there
        an easy way to tell spamassassin to "learn" this spam mail?  I
        am a typical user, I want it to work without becoming a power user.
        \_ I never used SpamAssassin, but here is from its README file:
           Since SpamAssassin now includes a Bayesian learning filter (in
           version 2.50 on), it is worthwhile training SpamAssassin with
           your collection of non-spam and spam, if possible.  This will
           make it more accurate for your incoming mail.  Do this using
           the "sa-learn" tools, like so:

           sa-learn --spam ~/Mail/saved-spam-folder
           sa-learn --nonspam ~/Mail/inbox
           sa-learn --nonspam ~/Mail/other-nonspam-folder

Use as many mailboxes as you like.  Note that SpamAssassin will remember
what mails it's learnt from, so you can re-run this as often as you like.

8/16    Why does my Y! mail account always full of unfiltered spam
        mails (and they're obviously spams)? Why can't they do
        a better job like Google mail? Why does Y! mail charge
        for exporting email? Google mail doesn't do that.

8/12    Ugg, no spamd any longer?  I figured I'd have to just give up on my
        soda address (sad, very sad) but Vacation doesn't seem to be installed
        either, so I can't even leave a mesg. to people telling them where
        tom mail me now.  Or can I ?  Any advice out there.  Or can we get
        spamassassin/spamd reinstalled or Vacation or... help....
        \_ Ha, gmail as spamassassin.  presently I am forwarding to gmail

12/8    Old news, but new to me:
        Spam King kills himself and his family after escaping prison
        Hopefully more spammers will take the hint.
        \_ I wish the same fate can go to all marketing and
           advertising folks, selling people things they don't

7/17    Thanks to steven, et al. for restoring Soda. In lieu of www.csua providing
        status, could there be a text file with current status and future plans.
        I'm wondering if SpamAssassin is obsolete (and my procmailrc and scripts)
        and won't be restored, and what's filtering spam now.  thanks!
        \_ How do I buy steven a beer or donate gobs of money?
           \_ I got him a Hacker-Pschorr, he seems to like ales.  Prob IPAs

5/4     Is mail still down? I don't seem to be getting any and vermouth
        is unavailable. I saw a note saying it was down Sunday, but it's
        almost Tuesday now.
        \_ exim4 decided it wanted to just die. With the same config file and
        everything. Steven spent all weekend and a lot of yesterday migrating
        to a VM. A side effect is that NFS is now no longer on Keg, so crashy

4/7     I have a friend who recently started a blog posting about
        legal issues (he was a lawyer who was laid off). I'm not sure why
        he started this blog, but it's likely something he can show off
        to potential future employers. Anyway, he keeps sending emails
        whenever he's added another entry (approx once a week). Is there
        any netiquette about mass emailings to tell friends/relatives
