Recently, I've been getting a lot of bounced mail. It looks like either a dozen spammers, or one spammer with a diverse portfolio, has been using majcher.com addresses as their Reply-To on their little packets of evil. So, this is a pain to me, because I need to be constantly updating my filters to dump the bounces when they show up, and delete the ones that I can't catch. Which is work for me, and processing time for the server. Plus, now there are probably thousands of folks out there who don't know any better, and think that I'm the spammer. Which I'm not. (And yes, I double-checked to make sure I didn't accidentally nudge my relay open after patching sendmail recently, thanks.)
So, to the spammers out there: What you are doing is not okay. You are vermin, barely human filth, and if I ever meet one of you in person, there will be words. Words like, "JESUS CHRIST, IT BURNS! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GET IT OFF MY CROTCH!" For the slower of you out there, this means that I am considering the application to the cretin's naughty bits with a rabid badger, which will be on fire. They are not screaming about my attempting to cave in their skull with a length of pipe while they flail about in pain, because I realize that even their limited craniums are capable of a small amount of prioritization.
In other news, we've been really really really busy with the house thing. We're going to Home Depot pretty much every day now. When I fart, it smells like Home Depot. But things are coming together. The current project is the bathroom - tiling, painting, doing the floor, all that. I've got a bunch of draft entries waiting to be edited and published, and one of them describes what we're planning on doing, so, until I get to that, suspense.
Plus, when I become dictator, I will decree that all pipes will be the exact same size.(April 14, 2003 11:14 AM)
