Inserting random comments like this..

into html emails. Seems to completely fool mcafee spamkiller. Good thing I didnt purchase it.

Technically just throwing <span> in there should work, too. Spammers are bastards.

I've got SpamKiller. It's just a killfile. But it's easier to use as a killfile then some other things, so...

I do that in posts all the time and it beats the flood control.

That would, RC. It's different text then what you posted before. And it wouldn't be rendered in HTML, now, will it?

very clever - I seem to remember you could do something similar with the vB code [ ]

So that's what "throwing a spanner in the works" means.

I found blocking all email from hotmail.com and yahoo.com worked a treat. :)
