Hi there,
I just received an unusual bit of spam. It was from msn.com inviting me to join their system. They even tell me how easy it would be to switch from my AOL account! Of course, they offer me the option to 'opt out' from future mailings too!

Now, if the '800 pound gorilla' style ISPs are resorting to spam, what hope is there that we can ever trust them to enforce sensible anti-spam policies. Has anyone else seen anything like this?

All the best,

Istvan
