Good, so I'm not the only person who is dazzled by the response this
message got.

Perhaps the organisation has a bad reputation for whatever reason but I
was a bit surprised anyway by "our" response.

Maybe it would be easier to ask that legitimate mail be marked [GEEKY]
or similar? The chances of spam or other unwanted mail being marked
[GEEKY] is about as high as it being marked [SPAM] or [UNWANTED]. Thus
if we filter unmarked messages we're 99% certain to not receive any


Have fun,
