You don't have a spam problem. I get a few thousand spams a day -
which get filtered down to a handful. I don't have a spam problem.

Jeff Poskanzer, now *he* has a spam problem. He gets a few million
spams a day: <URL: http://www.acme.com/mail_filtering/ >.

For anyone who runs an ISP, spam is chewing up an ever-growing
percentage of their bandwidth, and a significant fraction of their
staff time. They have a spam problem.

But me and you, we don't have a spam problem. At most it's an
annoyance.
