I used my flyswatter again yesterday on a "MAKE MONEY FAST" spam. It got zapped quickly, though.

Zap!

Hmm. I searched before posting and found that this one might be suitable to continue the thread rather than create a new one. If I did in fact post incorrectly then sorry for waking an old thread. That being said- I just got spammed from user himm66. I mean it actually came in from blackberryforums.com do not reply address which I've allowed on my filters to pass but it was an advertisement for cigarettes and stuff. Basically I just wanted to alert the mods about it or who ever takes care of these things. I do have it saved if you need it. Thanks

Youve gotta be kidding. The speed in which this was squashed is highly impressive. I was just telling my buddy about my experience today and he was whooed at the speed in which you respond to these pests. I quess a mods job never ends. Thanks again, and keep up the great work!
