Yes, but we are also more and more seeing unsollicited mail which is not
selling anything, but containing random text, taken from litterature,
with an attached picture that actually contains the commercial thing. So
whatever is not technical in my debian/ folder is quickly flagged as
"spam" in my head.  There's just too little time in our volunteer day
for being to dive more.
