I started rejecting mail from 'The Bat' well over a year ago. Of all
the mail received with "^X-Mailer:.*The Bat!", all were spam.
I still check the logs weekly and that has not changed. My logs show
that I have only received 3 this month though.
1 The Bat! (v2.00.0) 17:40:03
1 The Bat! (v184.108.40.206) 17:40:02
1 The Bat! (v3.51) 17:40:02
Real Programmers don't write in PL/I. PL/I is for programmers who
can't decide whether to write in COBOL or FORTRAN.
