Thanks Eric, I have started using this site and hope that it is not a trick
I will do 2 to 3 a day
When i made this post, my PC says your post is more than a month old - mu PC date is Jan 2003 and your post is 2 Jan 2003? Strange.

All posts are rated at over a month for some weird reason

E.ric.. how do you know that what is said on that site is in some way true?

Seems a bit too good to be true. Is it a trick? Go on Clueless, you be the guinea pig. Give her a few clicks and see if the spam starts pouring in.

Seriously though, I'd be a bit dubious.

The things i find suspect about it is that the "pay to list" price seems whey to much and "pay per click" seems.. um.. unlikely
It may be a hoax to get traffic that "proves" that advertising in search engines does work

Baldy... as a mailwasher fan you'll love this, i found an option built into K mail to "bounce" mail with a user unknown message not unlike mailwashers.... the anti spamm war has many weapons!

Hi Clueless,

Linux is starting to sound better and better all the time. I am a bit disillusioned with MailWasher at the moment. It dosen't like biggish email attachments very much and seems a bit slowish with ordinary emails. Might be time to reinstall

Yes getting paid $9.85 seem a little steep,
not sure if I would pay $0.985
but if 1000 people did it a few times a day for $0.0985 it soon adds,

but if they all knew it was only $0.0985 would you waste your time finish reading the web site at www.spambattle.com

I'm getting that weird message about the age of the message, too.

Plus the link doesn't work.

What this link http://www.spambattle.com/
the above link should work I tested it.

Someone told me if the spam Email has a NZ 0800 number in it, ring that up a few times each day, and hung up after a few seconds.

Normally Rob I have better things to do, but nobody else seems to be making a move on it. like I would be happy to give my ISP a little bit more money if they weeded out spam mail. by looking for key words in the email like cock, pussy, etc.

Robo, I suggest you ask the programmers to check their greater than or less than signs. Odds are they've got it the wrong way round (if date less than 30 days - display message).

This is the first change of year for the Press F 1 web site,

it looks like the months are compared but not the years.

Actually... you're probably right. Had forgotten in the whirl of things that we're into a new year!

I think it might be the year thing that is doing it.
