D'ArcyWell, it got through to us adding to our spam problem.

Right. I apologize that so much spam seems to be leaking through still. I
In fact my system successfully filtered out the original spam so that
was not my problem.
am working on the problem. I'm pretty sure at this point that I am seeing
all the spam (even those messages which gmail thoughtfully traps for me) and
have modified things slightly so that I can dig into the reasons why some
spams are missed and some pretty obvious hams are held.
I am sure that we all appreciate your efforts. That doesn't mean that
we should depend on you to block 100% of the spam. We need to take
some responsibility on our own systems too.
So, best approach now when you see a spam message is: try to rein in your
sarcastic wit and just hit the 'd' key.
Well, yes, that was my point. I had managed to filter out the spam but
then had to deal with someone responding here to a spam that I never
saw. The sarcasm was directed at the person who replied to the spam
rather than hitting the 'd' key.

This conversation sounds like we are in "violent agreement." :-)
