    Learning to love spam

    In response to the March 11 Perspectives column by News.com's Rachel Konrad, "Savoring spam: A true story":

    I have thoroughly enjoyed your spam story. I receive dozens of unsolicited e-mails everyday. Sometimes I put my irritation aside and admire the cleverness of the sender.

    As you said, it's a necessary evil--but an evil we all got so used to. Speaking of myself, I cant imagine facing an "empty" e-mail box in the morning.

    Anyway, thanks for such a nice article.
