Re: How do you stop outgoing spam?

Ya know Vadim, with all due respect, some people choose to live on
their knees, one govt after another.

You do know what happened to HUAC et al don't you? They got their
butts thrown out of congress. Sen Joe McCarthy died a lonely, bitter,
drunk.

Meanwhile, civilization demands of us to use a govt or govt-like
entity to run a legal system, not vigilantism.
