With all due respect to your "friend", screw it.  He sends a message 
to this list, asking for help, and occasionally the request is simple 
enough even I can help.  But by replying, I gotten about 10 of those 
things now.  All in html format and all deleted, I don't play those 

If, because he isn't subscribed to this list, and/or doesn't have the 
listserver whitelisted so he isn't seeing any of this thread, well, I 
can't help it, its his paranoia about reading a bit of porn/viagra 
spam or yet another 419.  It is his paranoia problem that he is 
trying to make into ours & we have enough to go around already, thank 

IMO, the list maintainer should remove him.  Forthwith.  After all, 
most of us aren't running windows other than x.  So we run something 
like spamnassassin & sort the trash to the JunqueMail folder, no big 
deal.  For those on dialup by the minute, I maybe could see it saving 
him some money, but it wastes 4 times the net bandwidth with all that 
html in several languages, only one of which I speak.  And, if it 
keeps him from getting his question answered, he hasn't really gained 
anything by annoying the rest of us.

Sort of like teaching pigs to sing.  Its not going to be noticeably 
successfull, and it annoys the hell out of the pig.

If you want to fwd this message to him, be my guest, he needs to know 
that at least one list reader considers such behaviour as
