OK folks,

All of you are putting your email address out there for the Bots that walk
the web to pick up.

For example the Bot looks at the news group and sees:

"J. Del Col" wrote in message
"keith" wrote in message


From that they can harvest two valid email addresses.

Go into your newsgroup reader and change the email address to something

invalidates the address you post when you post to this newsgroup such as

The Bot would now pick an invalid email that would bounce back.

Someone manually typing would know to remove the "NOSPAM" to send you a
valid email. It should be easy to do in your newreader software. For
Outlook Express go to Accounts and then pick Properties.

When I did this my spam dropped dramatically!

Now get back to growing Orchids!
