    I have my own thoughts on the spam problem here, which was originally an anti-Habeas rant that turned into a description of my own anti-spam setup.

    Basically, people are going way too crazy over filtering, email stamps, etc. The summary: if you want to stop spam, don’t post a static email address on a static web page and don’t use one email address for everything. It’s easy, simple, and it really works.
