We increasingly see our email accounts jugged up with SPAM and it seems
to be getting worse. Not only is it costing our health departments and
organizations money and filling up our email queues, but it is also
consuming our most precious resource, our time.
In a recent TechSoup article (TechSoup is a technology resource for
non-profits) the editors asked:
What do TechSoupers do with spam
* reply (a VERY bad idea)
* forward to uce at ftc.gov <mailto:uce at ftc.gov>
* track down and report abuse with Sam Spade <http://www.samspade.org>
Rather than cut and paste the comments from the site, I'll just give you
the URL and if you are interested, you can see how other non-profit
members are attempting to solve the problem of SPAM
on this page:
(or if you have HTML email, click the spam links above).
Note that the URL is on two lines. You must copy both into the Address
line of your browser in order to get to the content.
It is worth poking around the TechSoup site for other useful computer
information. This organization also sends out a free electronic
newsletter that you can sign up for.
If you forget where this site is or lose the email address, I will be
adding this information to my public health Weblog. Wait till later
today before you look since I'm a little behind in uploading content to
the blog. The blog URL is in my signature file below.

"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn." Alvin Toffler
"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity." Dorothy Parker
"There's no reason to burn books if you don't read them." Ray Bradbury
"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." T. S. Eliot
"The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both." James Michener
