How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Spam

Tom is right, of course. It’s an endless game of predator-and-prey. As fast as we evolve new strategies to foil the spammers, the spammers evolve strategies to overcome them. As you can see from the modified right-side bar, I’ve decided to concede the race. Send us your penis enlargers, your Nigerian financial scams, your farm-girl fetish sites yearning to breathe free!

UPDATE: Yes, that was supposed to be a joke. I've restored the format in the right-side bar. I'm not quite ready to concede the race just yet. But Tom is assuredly correct that smart spammers are wise to the -AT- convention, and it's only a matter of time before all the spambots scan for it.
