Podcast: Spam filter costs taxpayers $250,000

It's pretty easy to figure that my computer is costing me time. It seems like every day it takes just a bit longer to boot up. One of the tasks that takes the longest is retrieving my email. My email software doesn't seem to be getting along with the new email servers at my hosting company and retrieving email now seems to take forever. Add to this the insult of half of my email being spam that I intend to delete anyway. AAArrgh!

Lucky for me, I have a friend whose spam filter is even more aggravating to me than my own spam problem. This podcast contains the rant about that problem as well as a bit of an exploration of the problems of a group whose spam filter may have cost them $250,000.
