Ok, from the recent deluge I'm guessing a new set of FRESH LEADS cds has gone out to the spammer community, including addresses harvested from my old address book. Apologies to anyone who signed it with their real address, and to anyone who currently has an uppity-negro.com redirect addy. I can turn that off for you if you'd like; just let me know.
I'm also going to be using a different, thus-far-unpublished address as my primary one from now on, and also switched to a much-improved web interface with my ISP. Between these two, any messages sent to me recently may have, um, gone missing.
So if I haven't replied to something you sent recently, it's not just my normal rudeness and inability to respond promptly, I may not have received it.
Of course, putting the new address here for you to send it to would rather defeat the purpose, so re-send to the old one, and I'll try to look for names I recognize. Try to avoid subjects like "Hi" or anything mentioning mortgage rates or herbal Viagra, huh?
Oh, and have installed Thunderbird. And am loving it, even if it did choke on the 3000+ messages for the default email account for the site. All of which appear to be spam. Go figure.
More pretense and polite fictions for me, for the nonce.
