Hi all. I am going to change things up, hopefully to save you some time. Our spam filter works based on the actions we have been doing. The spam filter adapts based on the actions of the recipients of the mail. This service takes it's queue from all the large providers, like Google and Comcast, etc. This is likely why virtually every message you all copy/paste in here is already blocked by the time I get to it. So, for a while at least I would say we can trust in all the other users who have an easier path to report to continue to do so.

I'd like to ask you folks, that still seem to receive significant amounts of spam to let us know, right here how many messages you get in a day or a week. Whichever is convenient. As you receive them, you can place them in a spam folder. When ready, look at the date range and number of emails. The folder will give you the count. Then post the date range and total number of messages. This should take up much less time for you and give us some additional data as we look for feasible alternatives/augmentation.

If you wish to continue to copy/paste the source, I will continue to compare it to the filter and report it as spam in the few cases I come across. Would this be ok with you all?
