Hi Bob: First let me say that I loved your recent postings on the LFN site! I want to get involved too, but I am a bit concerned/confused about the spam thing. Why do people have "nospam" embedded in their email address? I use Netscape to read the newsgroup. How should I protect myself from spam, as you have? Thanks for your help Renee

AOL software has a built-in ng feature that lets you add such phrases as "nospam" so that the retrieved name becomes invalid for receiving such trash replies. I also have a Netscape account, but it doesn't offer that built-in. I know there's places you can go online, detours that are designed to disguise your real email name then re-send it along, but I've never done a search to find out where they are. I hope someone in our ng can recommend some. -Josefeena - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - "Their ends are just, but their means are ruthless. (Just who is Ruth anyway?)"
