I rarely use my hotmail account, yet every time I log in, there's always spam in my Inbox, and more spam in the spam folder.

I use my Gmail account frequently, and have not seen a spam in my Inbox in years. The spam folder has spam in it most days, but I expect this because I am actively using (and giving out) my Gmail address. Google's filters are fantastic.

I suspect that most people have similar experiences, judging from the replies I'm seeing here.

Embarrassing or not, neither the Tory, nor the previous Liberal, governments have had awesome track records when it comes to the environment. But there is a point in saying that the Kyoto Accord wasn't going to work well without India and China on board. And carbon trading is just a sham. And frankly, it doesn't matter one bit what the gov't does, if we, as consumers, continue to drive SUVs two blocks to get a bag of chips.

Thank you, Commander Taco, for making Slashdot what it was, and is. I've continued to read this site daily, even as other sites fell by the wayside, from the day I followed a link to it.

I've contributed to many a Slashdotting.

The arguments have been fun and entertaining.

And idle is pants.


PS: Slashdot is dead, long live Slashdot!

Don't be a goober. Changing your email address 'cause someone else's email is getting to you is like buying a new house because you got your neighbor's snailmail. The guy's comment is legit: How many friends and family members have your email address? How many forums have you signed up with yours? Do you do any online banking? Use eBay? Or Paypal? Do you not know how much of a pain in the ass it would be to change your email address and sort out all the stuff you'd have to change?

If all else fails, lower your standards.
