uw spam filtering

that last textbook post, with the couple of comments that mentioned spam, reminded me to post this. a week ago the daily did a story on the anti-spam measures the UW is taking. the headline was "Increased anti-spam measures confuse UW users."

apparently for some time now there's been a junk mail filter that you can turn on via your email management page. but of course i'd never heard about it (and hence had little chance to be "confused" by it), and so i figured other people might not have either. (and a tip for my fellow uw dial-up users: add a filter to delete messages with "user warning message" in the subject line to stop getting those annoying dial-up oversight messages. like you don't know you're online too much without them telling you. pshaw.)
