I love^D^D^D^Dhate spam filters



I just traded email with a friend of mine.  My initial response to him included a swear word (I know, I know, apparently I am a little evil – but only prime-time-tv evil).  Apparently our spam filter on our gateway rejects incoming mail due to language, but not outgoing email.  That must actually cut down on a lot of email that’s intended for me.  🙂


>Wow, chris can curse in his emails, but we can’t curse in the emails to HIM.

    Bill-

    While trying to find information on digital tablets or whatever they

    call them these days, I came across your paper, A Directory Of Sources For Input Technologies, at what I thought was your website, http://widebill.com/.

    Someone has copied your site, http://www.billbuxton.com/, an iteration

    or so back [current project doesn’t match], leaving everything internal

    alone, but changing all the external links.

    After doing a search on your name I found your site, and thought I’d let

    you know what someone has done.  I don’t know what you’ll be able to do

    about it, but at least you’ll know about it.

    yours,

    John Mead
