YOUR spam filtering.

Actually ...  I have several email addresses, and my mail comes 
in from several paths.  MY spam filtering seems to be nearly 
100% effective on the freeelectron address, which I control.  
It seems to be nearly 0% effective on the ieee address, which 
someone else controls.

A couple of years ago, I tried configuring my home system to 
apply that rule about tagging dynamic ip that doesn't go 
through a relay.  It was 0% effective.  100% of what it tagged 
was non-spam.  100% of the spam passed.

It was effective at tagging viruses, but on Linux they were not 
a problem.  It is easier and more effective to reject microsoft
