I finally got all my email straightened out and to my relief it's been piling up in a mailbox, not just emptying out into the ether. *phew* I would definately have lost my subscriptions to my mailing lists.
While trolling through the 1170 messages I've accumulated and ridding myself of the spam (oi!), I found this spam title from a spammer who Doesn't Get It: "Erection Cure" (emphasis mine). Somebody revoke his spamming license!
