mass damage rules

There's a particular in-house spam that's been going on DAILY at least as far back as when I came to UTMB, and it's some guy's "Thought of the Day", which are some random ridiculous fortune-cookie rhetoric quotes from god knows where (probably off of some lame website or even worse, his therapist or feng shui master).  They go out to almost the ENTIRE campus employee list, and I don't know how this guy gets away with it, because it's almost definitely against the rules we all have to annually take training to remind us of.  I heard gossip last week that the chairman of our department emailed that guy to get his name off the list and was refused.  For the past year or two I haven't been seeing them because I set a rule in Thunderbird to exclude all email from him, so I forgot about it.  But after hearing that nonsense about our chair I wrote an email today giving step-by-step instructions on how to set up a rule in Thunderbird, Outlook, and Outlook Express which would block this retard's emails and save lots of headache.  I suspended my own rule just to let one of his through so I could simply "Reply All" and get the word out.  Some woman complained tonight about his spam and how his "thoughts of the day" seem to be conflicting with each other.  I can't post email from my apartment (because sbcglobal email settings are ridiculously fucked up and don't play with others) so I'll have to wait until tomorrow morning to send mine out.  I made sure to point out how ridiculous his shit is, and hopefully I'll get a reply from him.  I'd love to hear his complaint about my solution and his justification for clogging up the university's email servers.

    I will try to hit up MFF if I can - with me it's always down to the last minute deciding whether I can afford the tickets & reg & room, and if I can sneak away from work to make it happen.. But I'm…

    Hm I honestly dunno if I still have a copy of that sero here... I had to mail one copy off to the state back in October when they sent me a reg suspension notice. I've been on 'borrowed' time since…

    Consider a used Civic. The current year model is a piece of crap, but I adore my 2006 and only one problem (battery) has occurred.

    I don't talk or interact with you anymore but that's not a good enough reason for you to get fucked on getting your truck repaired. I can beat that price sight unseen. also if you have your signed…
