I just had occasion to check my yahoo email account’s spam folder to see if a message I was expecting had accidentally been shipped there, and I ran into something that irritated me enough to start this thread. Messages are listed in chronological order, with the newest first. Some spammer (specializing in mortgage refinancing) has figured out how to make all his emails arrive with the date 2038, so they get put at the top of the list. So seeing as how the message I wanted would have arrived way back in 2006, I had to delete about 250 copies of the future spam in order just to get back to today’s date. And there was no message there.
So darn you, spammer! Darn you to heck with a rusty butter knife!
