<pre>I get an email spam so I report it... via email.
I *do not * don snorkle gear. I do not contort my body into odd
shapes. I do not make my report out-of-band, via smoke signals,
or morse code, or via modulated infrared wavelengths.
Call me old fashioned, but as I have already made plain, I do not think
that I should be required to do any of these things. It is easier for
me just to block all of Hostdime, which I had plenty of reasons to
do already anyway.
P.S. Seriously, how much arrogance does it take for them to say to
me that it is OK for me to have taken up *my* time to have read the
crap that was originated by *their* customer, but *they* cannot be
bothered to read *my* mail to them?
