"UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that
 would also stop you from doing clever things." -- Doug Gwyn

As far as I know, we don't make any strange methods to block or drop mail,
because it might succeed in going overboard and eat legitimate mail, and 
this list exists to help everybody who has laptops and debian, not just
individuals.  The correct response to spammers is:
	1. hit the delete key
	2. let the list sysadmin apply the current model of agonizer to them.

That way only one person's day gets much of a headache.

Ob Debian-laptop:  I notice that pcmcia-cs in "pure" woody is still (ugh)
3.1.22?  That's *ancient*!  sid has 3.1.31 - can we convince them to promote
it over so the woody discs don't roll out hopelessly behind?  Or does anyone
know of an abiding reason why they've let it rot?
