Heh. I should look around more before posting. It does prove your
point, though. The 'spam' button is ubiquitous, but so seldom used
it's forgotten.

Actually, my enthusiasm for my idea faded with a little thought. It is
an extra effort to open spam to get to the 'spam' button, and sends
the message to the spammer that people are, indeed opening their junk.
I'd use it if I opened a message with a deceptive subject.
