Remove your email address from all of the PostMaster General's client list. They send so much crap!

So basicaly what they do is gather a list of e-mail addresses of people who do not want Spam?
I'm thinking that this would be a bad idea.

Think of it this way...if you have ever received SPAM through postmaster general, you'll try anything to get rid of them. :bigmouth:

where did the word "spam" come from anyway?

The term "spam" comes from a famous Monty Python sketch. As explained by Hormel Foods itself: "Use of the term "SPAM" [in the Internet context] was adopted as a result of the Monty Python skit in which a group of Vikings sang a chorus of "SPAM, SPAM, SPAM ..." in an increasing crescendo, drowning out other conversation. Hence, the analogy applied because UCE [unsolicited commercial email] was drowning out normal discourse on the Internet." For the rest of spam.com's interesting position statement on the use of its trademark in this fashion, see http://www.spam.com/ci/ci_in.htm
