That's cool. I think seeing two different people ezplain it 'at the

same time' each in their own way is better than just one or the other.

I suppose I could try it myself as yet a third iteration, but I won't.

The last time I pointed out that JT doesn't spend time here,

I was slapped hard by seeing JT make a post within 15

minutes, so won't go there again. The SpamCop filtered

e-mail account stuff is normally handled in the

spamcop.mail newsgroup (basically dead) or over in the

Forum (in this case the "New Feature/Suggestion" section.

Is there a BL for that already? If so, point to it.

As you say, as compared to the other newsgroups, even

spamcop.help ... there is very little traffic. The e-mail

sections of the Forum have been (much too) active of late.

My observations, my thoughts, my opinions, but I'm

not sure why there'd be a difference of opinion. The only

reason I added it to my 'subscribed' was because the

traffic is so low.

I've not been anything but a free-report account holder

all these years due to the lack of funds, so any and all

effort has been voluntary with the goal of making a better

resource. The (Forum) FAQ was updated again yesterday,

will probably have some more stuff added today ... the

Glossary has been recently updated with anchor tags,

re-sorted, more words to be added, and although I started

that work, another Forum user did the major re-work of

the current version. All I can say is that these resources

didn't exist before, and I can't figure out why it's such

an issue that they exist now.

I'm really getting bored with all this, you know. I get taken

to task at pointing to the Forum too much, I get taken to

task because I include the pointer to a specific newsgroup.

I ask for help in the attempt to build a whole different bridge,

and see that even though folks are quoting stuff (which one

would normally presume would get around the various

kill-files I'm in) I don't see the same complainers coming

forward with anything to help.
