What to do About Spam?

Dear Madame L,

I'm getting more and more e-mail messages lately that are obviously spammish scams. What should I do about this?



Dear Fellow Sufferer,

Madame L feels your pain and suggests:

--Reading Google's article on how they recognize spam and deal with it, just for the heck of it;

--Reading this Wikipedia article on anti-spam techniques; and

--Reading this Wikihow article on 5 ways to fight spam.

Madame L has stopped opening email messages from people she doesn't know, has increased her spam filter to the maximum, has installed spam-detecting software on her computer, and has stopped visiting Web sites she isn't absolutely sure are okay.

Other suggestions, Dear and Faithful And Spam-Free Readers?


Madame L
