Yes, I get those Nigerian spammers... and more to boot. The easiest way to
stop this appalling situation is to log off all together. Why wait for
"hackers" to "bring the ... system down" when one can exercise one of our

can't stop the source, we can certainly prevent it from entering our homes,
desktops, PDAs...
