Spam comes from all over, is generated by illegitimate and legitimate
businesses, using Windows and *nix systems, and is definitely not restricted
to Windows zombies.

But always remember, you're a Linux advocate, and you shouldn't let reality
get in the way of your sick perception that Windows is the cause of all that
is bad in the world.

When you don't know the game, Roy (and you don't), it's best to keep your

Sinister Midget - post didn't contain his usual assortment of silly
Microsoft names, like MICROS~1, Winders, etc.
