How do I stop the spam if I use this group?

Hello nice PC people!

I'm a new and infrequent poster on this group.  However, I've noticed some of
you changing your email addresses (with the words "no spam" in them) so as to
stop receiving spam messages.  

Guess what...I'm getting them.  Yuck!!!!

How do you AOL members change your screennames so as to stop the automatic
messages that are coming your way?  Any help would be appreciated!!

Sincerely,
Rebecca

Go to the set preferences button on the first newsgroup screen. Under the
Posting tab, the second set of directions gives you the option of adding some
characters to your return address that seems to foil the spammers. Good luck.

Love cannot be wasted. It makes no difference where it is bestowed, it always
brings in big returns.

Rebecca,

Also keep in mind that if you do get spam and you are offered a "remove me
from the list" option, DON'T DO IT. If you do so, you'll only be confirming
that they hit on a valid e-mail address. So, if you do get any spam, just
delete it.

Shelly
To reply by e-mail, remove the three numbers from my name.

Sorry, Risa and Marcy, I'm in Farmington, near Detroit.

The upside of that is I'm really close to the Detroit Polymer Clay Guild, and
they're having their next few meetings about two miles from my house.  Who
knew?

:-)
