I use Gmail as my primary email access.  It does a good job at separating out spam from wanted stuff – not perfect, but probably better than 98%.

I think I’m glad the spammers aren’t that good.

I had a piece of mail that Gmail identified correctly as spam.  The author, though, didn’t do his homework.  He purported to be from Gmail (I mean GMAIL), but the originating address was from AOL.

Hint to spammers: at least fake the address of the provider you’re trying to impersonate.  Make it a little harder on us civilians.  This really isn’t your A game.
