Talking of spam - Have you folks ever wondered how they never want to
sell anything that is worth buying?  All the spam that I have got seem
to belong to one of the following categories -

* Make money fast (rehash of the old pyramid scheme)
* Advertise your site in a gazillion search engine for pennies
* Scantily clad persons are waiting for me to visit their pages.
* 10,000 "fresh" email addresses are available for 19.95 (this should be
the spam equivalent of recursion ;-)

If people are going to spam me, why don't they ever sell books, s/w, h/w
for cheap?
