I am sure this is a problem for everyone...so I thought I would share my
solution! PORNOGRAPHY!!! I hated getting all that gross mail. Anyway...i
started to fight back. Everytime I got one of those unwated mails, I sent a
note to AOL (my service provider) and I also sent a note to the sleezoid who
sent me the letter. I tell them they have been reported to AOL and THEIR
internet service provider. That this mail was unsolicited and not to give my
address to any on/offline vendors, persons or organizations. and...believe
it or not...it seems to work. I get a couple a week now that I am on this
list...but..before...I got nothing. I also do with with unwanted advertising
stuff. This is actually a legal notification. They can bother you
once...but if you put in writing that they are not to contact you
again....you can go after them!!! This is the tactict used with very
agressive telemarketers (no offense intended to telemarketers). Anyway....it
is a little more work on my part...but now do not have to weed through all
that garbage!!!

Good Luck!
