	I assume your using spamd and have the same bash file I do in 
.procmailrc and many of the spam artists have I think got a linux 
computer set up just like ours and have learned to write spam that just 
makes it through the filter. At first I got no spam. Then slowly I am up 
to about 4 a day out of several hundred sent.

	I wish the Government would hire a company like IBM to mount a 
war against those who write and send spam over the internet.
