Re: Subject: Blocking messages #general

Dear Gerald and other Genners,

While the idea to block spam and junk mail might be
the same for both high setting security and an altered
e-mail address resulting in a message such as "For
reasons connected with anti-spam/junk security, the
return address is not valid. To communicate with me,
please delete [whatever]..." at least we know up
front, before we respond that we will have to go
through some extra steps to communicate with the
requester.

It is discouraging to do research to help someone,
only to be surprised and confounded by the security
protocols when trying to send one's results. I would
suggest that you add an addendum to your postings
indicating that you have security devises that others
must complete when responding. That would make it
very clear >from the beginning.

Thanks,
Shellie Wiener

My reason for having my settings on high is because
for every message that I want, a suitcase full of
messages comes [that] I don't want. Some bringing
spyware, viruses and worms. The benefit, besides the
obvious, is that all these messages are not stored in
my computer until I request them. I apologize for any
inconvenience that may cause you the sender. Is this
not similar to people who give us their email address
and ask us to delete certain parts of it for obvious
reasons? <snip >
