Some days I despise spam filters. Mind, I use hotmail for all my 
semi-junk stuff, so we are talking about a damn stupid spam filter to 
start with. However, I have yet to comprehend why the same **identical** 
email, and I do mean syntactically and content wise, identical, but with 
different source addresses, keeps getting through, no matter how often 
people mark it as spam, (its one of those "buy viagra or cialus for less 
emails), but every bloody time I sign up for email from an actual 
company I have to hunt the spam bin for the email, mark it as valid, 
then hope that Notmail doesn't randomly start trying to throw it out 
again in a month.

I have no bloody idea how they program those filters, but some ISPs, 
including MS employees, are absolute idiots.

     call functional_code();
     call crash_windows();
