      Yeah, I don't need those things either -- but because I work in the auto
      industry (at a guess, 80-90% male) and my work email address is an
      alphanumeric combo left over from the days when your email addy had 8 and
      only 8 characters available (but still had to be unique) -- I get more ads
      directed towards men than you can imagine. And this is *after* my company
      uses filtering software to get rid of the most obvious spam!! I'm not
      sure what the spammers're thinking... as one of my co-workers put it,
      "Even if I were interested in such items, I'd hardly respond from
      *work*!!" <G>

      Merrily,
      JoAnn
