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
           and then forwarding to where I really want it from there.
           don't know why I feel compelled to share my kludge. -top
        \_ Stop bitching and ask someone on root. I've emailed asking if this
           was intentional. Also, storing mail on soda has been deprecated for
           the past year and a half. Man up and .forward it already.
           \_you misunderstand.  I *have* been forwarding it already.  (for
             quite a long time).  But filtered I sent it through spamc first
             avoiding, among other problems, loops caused by my anti-spam
             service bouncing it when it is spam), now i am forwarding it
             twice!)
        \_ Apparently spamd was never even set up.
           \_ spamassassin used to work, back in the day.

12/8    Old news, but new to me:
        Spam King kills himself and his family after escaping prison
        http://blogs.zdnet.com/security/?p=1553&tag=rbxccnbzd1
        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
           really need. I esp. hope it happens to people who
           advertise cigarettes, promote alcohol, and gambling.
           I hope it also happens to all diamond marketing
           folks. And luxury car marketing folks. Actually,
           I hope ALL marketing people die the same fate.
           \_ What about sales people? How do you feel about them?
           \_ So the marketing guys at my startup (who are trying to figure
              out which sector we should sell our storage software product
              to) should, in your opinion, kill themselves?  Truly you are
              a prince among men.  Keep up the good work there, twit.

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!

5/4     Is mail still down? I don't seem to be getting any and vermouth

        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
           keg will no longer be a problem. There might still be a few hiccups with
           getting NFS4 working, though. At this point I believe we're just waiting
           for EECS to unblock the port on the firewall for the new machine doing
           mail. We're now using postfix. --t

6/23    why do women's razors work better on my face than men's razors?
        is it because i'm azn?
        \_ Asian men have "finer" figures that are more similar with
           Caucasian women. In fact, many Caucasian women have MORE
           hair than Asian men.
        \_ What part of your face?  Beard or facial hair?
        \_ I'm asian. what beard?  im talking about the hair above my
           upper lip.
           \_ What razors are you comparing?  Because a thin cartidge probably
              is what's most important.  Those 4 blade monstrosities are
              make it really hard to shave under the nose.
        \_ Women's razor handles are often shaped differently for different
           gripping.  Maybe you're just holding your face razor wrong?  Or
           maybe you should replace your cartridge more often?
        \_ "What azn razor and white razor?  There is no azn razor!  I demand
        \_ "Azn razor?  White razor?  There is no azn razor!  I demand
           the same razor!!"
        \_ You are a girly man.
        \_ Interesting. Every woman I've been with has preferred to use
           my razor. Overall, men's razors are better quality. I presume
           it's because faces are more sensitive than legs. From my
           experience (using womens' razors when I had to) I don't like
           womens' razors at all.
           \_ I'd rather think it's because men's razor market is bigger, such
              that it can support bigger competitors who can invest more in
              research.

4/17    How do I get procmail to delete emails with things like
        ^Viiiaaaagggrrra in the message body.  ^V then i+ then a+ ...
        \- a better rule would be to check for the language type, and
           if it's undeterminable or has too many misspellings then
           it's most likely spam email. ps i'm gay ok thx.
        \_ Thatd be some pretty impressive regex magic, to get all imaginable
           misspellings.  Like say vlagkra...
           \_ I don't mean all misspellings. I mean some numbers of Vs
              followed by some number of Is and so on.
        \_ Don't do this.  You're just reinventing the wheel, poorly.  Instead,
           run your mail through spamassassin or ASware of your choice which
           can add spam tagged headers to your mail and sort/delete based on
           that.  There are tons of docs on how to do this with procmail out
           there.

           the 358 (!) pieces of spam I was mailed today. I only had two
           legit emails though, so perhaps answer #1 is better for me.
           I actually forward my csua email to google, as well, which
           does further filtering.

6/28    Q: What are folks using these days for anti-spam measures?  I'm
        looking for something that integrates with my MTA (postfix) or my
        delivery agent (sieve).  Currently I'm using a crufty version of
        spamassassin wired into postfix via amavisd-new.  It's decent, but I
        don't want to be bothered with manually upgrading spamassassin or
        updating rulesets on a regular basis.  Anyone have any experience
        with DSPAM or Spamassassin plus some kind of automated rules
        updater?  Are
        there any new open-source anti-spam tools ftw? -dans
        \_ I just let Thunderbird do the job.

           reported as having a high spam score and doesn't have a reverse
           IP.  I've got about 8000 IPs blocked and get very little spam
