[OT?] HTML email is evil - or, why we get so much spam

I'm with Mikey. I finally broke down and forwarded all my email
addresses to my Gmail account. Most of you don't know I do this
because gmail can be configured for any reply-to address. My
chipp at chipp.com email address has been around for hundreds of years,
and is probably on every SPAM list there is. GMAIL does a great job of
filtering about 98% of it.
Gmail has a host of other cool features as well. I now don't need to
download all my SPAM and other email to each and every computer I own
(I have 4 of them). Labels in Gmail are even better than folders, and
of course the entire text of each message is indexed, allowing me to
search for older emails with specific content almost instantly.
