Oh yes, doing a great job.  This time last year I had an average of 2500 
SPAM messages in quarantine a week.  Now I have over 5200 a week, an 
increase since all the SPAM legislation world wide kicked in.

Legislaiton and regulations have an opposite affect to the desired.  They 
tell people what they HAVE to do to comply with the regulations and get 
around them, not what they should do to comply with the regulations and not 
be pests!
