too much spam, goodbye

For all the talk I hear about how good gmail is at blocking spam, you'd think the spam problem coming from googlegroups would be an easy fix.

I think I'll just watch from the forum. I love rails, but spam annoys me more.

Like most all good email filters, the GMail spam filter requires
training. (That's peeps like you and me hitting the spam button every
time we see spam)

you'd think the spam problem coming from googlegroups would be an
easy fix.

Spam is not an easy problem to fix, that's why it's still around. Do
you honestly think if Google could make it go away they wouldn't
proceed with all due haste?

The problem is that spam is still profitable. Inexperienced internet
users are still clicking on the links in the emails. There will
always be inexperienced internet users, not even Google can "fix"
that.

I think I'll just watch from the forum.

annoys me more.

See ya!
