i have my real spam under control, but i am getting a mountain of
redirected spam where some of my email addresses are being set as "Reply
To" in the spam, so i get all the spamfilters sending it to me

i don't quite understand some of the spam, it can't really be targeted
or i wouldn't get:

* foreign medications, kinda pointless since our PBS makes them cheaper
than the spammers' goods

* offers of govt finance that only americans can apply for

* Viagra & penis enlargement (guys, figure out why i ain't interested,

and many more, equally pointless.

why can't they offer me something i would buy, like a new camera, or
some nice shoes with 3" heels, or a date with James Bond?

it's the lack of imagination that offends.
