More Silly Spam

Just got a spam message with the subject Who would say no to free money?. Well, me, when I hit the delete button :).
The Bayesian spam filtering in Mozilla 1.3 is starting to come into its own now – I’m getting fewer and fewer false positives as time goes on, which can only be a good thing. Of course, I’ve been using it since 1.3 Alpha came out before Christmas so it’s had about 3 months of coaching, but I think persistance has paid off.
Ironically, excluding my Hotmail and Yahoo accounts, the address that I get the most spam from is one that I rarely, if ever, give out. My primary email address, which I’ve had since August 2002, gets almost no spam, and I’m not complaining.
