    That's the one.

    It's an admission that he just doesn't understand "how things work".
    He's always spouting bull**** that clearly shows that he's ignorant. It's
    just funny to see him say that his ignorance is greater than that of the
    average guy who has anything to say about the spam problem. He's been
    frothing for years, and he still doesn't understand how email works.
    That's funny!

    Oh, my. I start a new job in another country, and I get to see old,
    broken ideas being hawked again.

    Go take a look at http://www.craphound.com/spamsolutions.txt to see why
    any particular solution proposed here will probably not work.
