If you need to vent, just quote the first couple lines and snip the
rest. Better yet, get a newsfeed with an active filtering system. I
*never* see heavily propagated spam unless someone replies to it.

Usenet is unbelievable, isn't it? The problem is, responding to "get

years. You don't want the *real* newbies to think it's OK, do you?

Responding to lame covert spam is more of a gray area, but I agree
it's still a waste of time. Sometimes, though, you get gems like Chad
the Thumper and then it's party time. <stands up, does Cabbage Patch>

I don't think that's possible here.
