I think it's a good thing Microsoft is going after spammers - who cares
if they loose the money (or their freedom, heh) they earned from sending
you an email.

Either way, it's a good thing.  It takes resources away from Micr0$0ft's
other legal pursuits which can't possibly be a bad thing.  It might
have an impact on spammers (which also can't possibly be a bad thing).

For once, I see this as a win-win proposition.


If it wasn't crypto-signed, it probably didn't come from me.
