cromulent? I need a new dictionary, mine has nothing between croissant and crone. Mores, however is an old word.
@AC: No, it isn't bloody Chinese internet users sending you spam, it's the bots on their poorly-secured PCs. Haven't you noticed, the spam is in English, not Chinese, and, if you take up the offer, where does the money go? Millions of Chinese people have recently got broadband, and they have the average newbie's knowledge of security. Meanwhile, I'm getting tonnes of spam in Chinese sent from zombies in London via clueless ISPs in St Louis (well, not exclusively London & St Louis, but you get the idea).
OK, all those who want to just disconnect the "worst" countries, I've got an easy solution: unplug your router. This is also, Green - think of the power savings.
