But the only thing stupider and more annoying than spam is posting a 
response that is intended for the spammer to read.

Spammers don't read the newsgroups they spam. If you want to do something 
useful, read the headers, figure out whence the spam was posted, and 
complain to the administrator. Otherwise, save the bandwidth.

I don't need e-mail copies of posted follow-ups, but if you send 
them PLEASE identify them as such.
My reply address is correct as is. The courtesy of providing a correct
reply address is more important to me than time spent deleting spam.
