I'm not doing that though, I don't intentionally sign-up for anything 
and the deliberately mark it as spam when I'm no longer interested. 
Every mailing list I've joined I have a genuine interest in, or it's a 
hobby of mine..( I see no 
real way that my email address got out TO the people who are using it as 
a spam receptacle! All I want is for the mail that I have no intention 
of reading to be sent either to my spam folder...or else the trash! I 
guess for now it'll have to be me adding addresses to my filter, until I 
can get a handle on the Spam Assassin thing..or else I might have to 
just block everything..and then create filters for the stuff I DO want! 
but one way or the other...I intend on handling this spam issue before 
the end of the year!! Thank you all for your input...some of those ideas 
I'm definitely going to try out.....heck ANYTHING'S better than being 
"strapped" to your computer for hours at a time!
