Actually I press the ``S'' key which is a mutt macro that
saves the message in a Maildir folder which is then send
to the Spamassassin sa-learn program to update my bayesian
filters.  I get lots of spam to my totally unfiltered role
folders for mail to support, postmaster, and abuse, all of which
goes to feed sa-learn.

People who relieve others of their money with guns are called robbers. It
does not alter the immorality of the act when the income transfer is
carried out by government.
