Spulling and Puntcuation - Now Crtrical

Ah bum.

Well I guess the time finally came. I have finally turned off the default forward-all-emails-to-my-domain-to... option on my pair.com account. For the sake of my powerbook's hard disk really.

I don't mind a bit of your oldskool junk mail - faintly annoying but there you go. Most of it is so obvious it can be caught by normal filters or is so obviously nonsense my brain can just kill it from the subject line alone.

But I'm now getting a few thousand 'bounce' emails a day from people who are merely the recipient of some spambot picking my domain name at random for that particular batch of Cialis ads.

So, as of now, I'm really sorry, but if you want to email me - it's time to get the address right!

Have you tried sending it through a gmail account? You can pick it up via pop, and it does a good job of catching this kind of stuff...
