In a word, yes. End of November spammers took a break - only 10-15 per
day, then the gates of hell opened. Fortunately, I use gmail, and it
only takes 2 clicks to whack them all. I've only ever seen 1-2 false
hits every three months, and all of those are for this list!!!
Something about Boulder and lug in conjunction with the usual spamming
words triggers a hit <grin>.

I wouldn't run my own mailer for all the tea in China.

     If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries
     of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
