This may be slightly off topic, but those specials you see where Chris 
Hansen gets to act like a self-important beast of burden are very 
skewed.  What they don't tell people is where they actually meet these 
guys.  On chat rooms, some of them, but a lot they also meet on IRC, 
which in my min is the equivalent of trolling a steak in wolf country. 
Of course your going to bring them in there!
To end this back on topic, GMail catches pretty much 90 percent of all 
spam, Thunderbird takes care of about 80 percent of the rest, and since 
I run Thunderbird without downloading images automatically.  The rest, I 
can delete.
