LOL -> 110% effective in my opinion, with very little opportunity to
send false positives back to them (about 1 time in 10).  So if you
use gmail, check your spam "folder" frequently.  So far, the most
egregious example I've seen was a -rc release announcement from a
certain Mr Torvalds : on this list that would certainly be regarded
as O/T, but google made that identification on the linux kernel list

Unfortunately, the address I'm using here comes via virginmedia who
outsourced email to google - lots of supposedly adult messages get
trapped there, but regrettably not the spam from this list.  Oh well,
at least there are usually only a few spams per day at the moment.

Nanny Ogg usually went to bed early. After all, she was an old lady.
Sometimes she went to bed as early as 6 a.m.
