I work online from home and as such I am pushing and pulling nearly 3000 
emails a month now. (Much of it fun stuff like the LUG...not actually 
"work.") Needless to say, I get a LOT of Spam in that mix.

My favourite Spam (which used to really get to me when I was on a slow 
dialup and before I put it all in perspective) begins with "Look...we don't 
want to waste your time or ours..." It struck me after reading this the 
first few hundred times that as soon as I've got that line read each time, 
it is already too late...they have wasted my I created a filter 
to send that stuff to my trashbox directly without my having to read it. 
(All hail the Gods of Eudora!) :)

Don't sweat the small for is ALL small stuff.
