That's true, fair enough. But in the end, if you don't wanna receive any
spam, you should set up good Procmail recipes. Or, the easy way; install
SpamAssassin. :-) It is *really* good, I have to emphasize it again and

If I'd be whining to every mailing list I've subscribed to (believe me,
there are *many*), I would still receive tons of spam, no matter how
politely I would've been asking. As I said, after installing this
marvellous software, the amount of spam that comes *through* has dropped
to almost zero. You really should consider installing it.

Well, again -- before I set up SA, I had Procmail recipe, which would
kill all mails with Content-type: text/html and also all mails with
subject 'unsubscribe'. This worked fine -- for me, at least.

Umm, something weird is going on in your end, because I can access the
site with no trouble at all. Try adding a trailing slash to that URL,
if it would help? Pretty weird indeed, because I just pasted that URL
I wrote and am looking at the page right now...
