Ron, I think you'll find that this is an epidemic that is
'going around', and is impossible to stop. These are
just cretins, as you said, with nothing more constructive
to do than learn new ways to be annoying. Their only
reward is the knowledge that people are bothered. They
find ways to accomplish it, even though we do all in our
power to thwart them. It would take super software
experts (like Microsoft) to find ways to detect, identify,
and even punish them, but even the newsgroups where
advice close to Microsoft emanates, don't seem to take
an active interest.

I've given up. I have filters that detect 90% of their garbage
and delete it automatically. And, thank heaven, I have
anti-virus software and two-layer ISP protection as well.
I'm resigned to just live with it until it goes away.
