Sam,

Seems to be the only Spa I get at G.

Not anywear near as bad as all the SEX/SEX RELATED SPAM on hotmail.

Nothing is totally free, probably a simular engine being used from inside G as the SEX one on hotmail, which is an internall spam engine.

Do what I have done and get a small piece of white tape and cut it to size and place it on the screen over the spam label, it works a dream. I even use the same idea to block adds that bother me.

If you have trobles applying the tape or sourcing it let me know.

You really do think the entire world is just one big conspiracy don't you? Does the tinfoil hat itch much?

That post was a lot of crap. No mail provider could possibly spam their own customers and get away with it, unless it was implicitly stated in it's terms and conditions.

As for the original poster, spam is a way of life. It's going into the spam folder so the filtering system is doing it's job. I mean seriously it's a free service - stop the bitching already.

Ninja,

Did you sell your identity to sombody, or have you just started to show the real you??.

lot of negative karma generating post being made lately??

Much of the SEX SPAM in HOTMAIL is going from 1 H/M add to many other H/M add's on an Internall (As in, IN HOTMAIL) spam engine. H/M have admitted a problem with this type of INTERNALL SPAM ENGINE.

Not as in a spam engine owned designed operated buy H/Mail itself. Allthough such an engine does exist, it is used to send all the H/M promos.

As the M/S O/S is so insecure, it could probably be hijacked if one tried.

No large @mail unit is totally immune to this type of INTERNALL SPAM engine.

Hence G mail may have such an issue with the S/W SPAM group, whom see to be the major offenders at G.
