Workable anti spam?
I received this in a newsletter. I never heard of it before.
Does anyone think this is workable?
I think it will be hard to get the widespread use that it probably will need.

- I sure see SPAM when it hits ME in the face.
That entire post you received IS SPAM, along with it being a dumb hoax to
earn themselves money.
Passing it along makes it even worse.
