I got maybe 5 mails... but some even before I subscribed to linux-kernel.
I'm on linux-net and linux-scsi since a long time, and never thought it
could come from there.

I even got an advertising for a "NEW BULK EMAIL PROGRAM!" which
"MADE EASY FOR "ANYONE" TO LOAD & USE!". I'll give their email to
anyone who want to "do something"... I also have their smail address.

While we are on the way, *NEVER* subscribe to

CTR Computer Technology Research Corp.
6N. Atlantic Wharf
Charleston, SC 29401-2115 USA

They send me 1-2 (paper) mails a week advertising books in the $300 range.
I already sent email to them telling them to stop it, but they didn't...
although they answered. As I'm not in the US, I can't do more than "REFUSE"
every letter they send me...
