Actually, there is. Spam is what I object to. Non-spam is what I don't

It would if my computer could understand what I'm telling it better. ;-)
Seriously, filters that are customized to the individual are very
effective. The problem is getting the average person on the street to
put in the time to write a customized e-mail filter for themselves.
Most MUA's these days have mechanisms for the users to insert rules.
But very few users avail themselves of these. It's easier for them to
bitch to the ISP, and assume of course that the ISP understands exactly
they want to get and what they don't want to get.
