Re: Ah, the joys of career-ending emails

Ah, yeah, the old usenet killfile etc.

As for email, I first got proper email in 1988, but I was never popular enough to have to filter it! not for a number of years (and even then, it was only done by automatically changing my usenet posting address to a temporary time-expiring email address - I just checked my maillog - in the last month, I stil had spam attempts sent to jamie.97223@... - an address that has been invalid for 22 years!)

I don't think many corporate email systems had spam filtering then. Still, I should have be clearer - I know ours didn't, and I'm pretty sure his didn't either.
