It doesnt surprise me... I use Apple mail so never do any cleaning to my GMail inbox, and I have like 300 messages and about 900 messages in Spam.

The only thing that can be done is to hav laws put in place that would allow vendors to make software that track down the site to which the spam came from and issue a few warnings before blocking access to it or something. I say this instead of shutting them down because companies that send you eMail that you subscribe to is looked at as spam in AOL and Yahoo's filters..

OR... we could hire a hacker to night and day just hack in to spammer's site, get 'em with a denial of service attack, and move on to a new site. Thatll clean up those tubes!
