Re: Networking in Africa...
>Who cares? It's not like one of you got ripped off by 419. Load up >SpamAssassin and forget about it. SpamAssassin doesn't block 419 spam very well because the messages keep changing. Since I get at least a thousand 419 spams for every actual message from West Africa, the reasonable response is to block networks from which I get repeated 419 spam until they figure out how to deal with their spam problem. So far, none of them have come off the block list yet, although there's one or two that seem to have clueful enough management that I didn't block them in the first place. -- John R.
