Ever wonder why obvious spam mail has a *higher* rate of valid SPF records
non-spam? Because spammers are even more anxious to convince you that
for real than legitimate sites are

SPF comes out May 2004.  Inside 6 months, spammers are using it more than
non-spammers. Even the paranoid in me was surprised - I was expecting it
to be
at least a year.

What gets me is how is the almighty paranoid, skeptic can believe the words
of just one news rag?

The article was a prime example of what "Harry Frankfurt" writes about in
this top selling book.  Google "Harry Frankfurt" or just click here:

pretty well.  <g>
