Same here.  And, in fact, the last employment offer I got in email came from
Guido -- that doesn't mean I want to see 500 penis enalargement ads per week
too just because they purport to come from Guido.  Or maybe they really do
<wink>.  In any case, spambayes is doing a perfect job so far of
distinguishing real email from Guido and Barry (etc -- they're not the only
ones) and spam claiming to come from them.  If someone adds a whitelist
option to spambayes, my only demand is that there be a big red button that
promises to disable it.
