|What happens when I want to get technical Emails from manufacturers with
|.kr, .tw or .cn in their addys. Good idea but I can't see how it could be
|made to just descriminate against Spam Email.
I get all my TSMC data via Artisan and other SEA foundries via MOSIS,
the legitimate USA purveyors for these entities. I don't think I've
*ever* received a legitimate E-mail directly from .CN, .TW or .KR.
Now .JP is a different matter, which is why I haven't cut them off
completely... but the quantity of Spam from .JP is minuscule compared
to the others.
