You know, there are probably millions of people who never received the 
original spam because their Usenet provider does a good job of filtering 
out crud, and they wouldn't even know it existed, except that YOU decided 
you had to be a big man by engaging the spammer in conversation.

Did you really think even for a millisecond that the spammer actually 
hangs around long enough to read replies to his spam?

All I can say is, thank goodness for automated Baysian filters, because 
now your email address is associated with spam in thousands of filters 
across the world, reducing the chances of us seeing posts from you. I 
think that's a good thing.
