Exactly, I've no problem looking through 100 spam messages *once* per day,
but if I have to find out 10 times per day that the new message in my inbox
was just spam again, I get really upset.
If I've got all the spam nicely sorted in one place, I find it even quite
amusing to browse all this stuff about age reversing wonder pills, free porn
membership offers or strictly confidential business proposals from the
former "Assistant Controller of Finance Dept Nigeria" ;-)
