SPUG: The Spam Problem

I agree with Dancerboy back there. I've read all the posts (albeit as
more of a lurker than much else) and I've yet to find a one that wasn't
plaintext. And that's a very easy regexp to make to catch/strip HTML tags
of any kind in a message. Or certain keywords that would never be used in
the general context of this group.
But the real (and rather trivial) reason I'm writing here is the word
SPUG. It does sound like a potato (and if we constructed a User's Directory,
we would be.), but I've seen the actual word in use in some comics. Batman
and Judge Dredd, I think they were. Unfortunately, in both instances it was
used in the context of a henchman/gang member. So much for culture. Feh.
Is it just me, or does the job market in Seattle actually appear to be
picking up a bit? I got a phone call AND a rejection yesterday, and that's
more than I got in the last six months.
Back to the shadows, again...
"Where am I?"
"Well, you can't get there from here."
"But I'm looking for the same old place!"
"Oh, you must mean the old Same place. It's right out back."
