+++ The process is changing, that is true, and for me it is
getting better.  The filtering system used by one or more
ISPs merely adds an identifier (such as "spam?") to the
subject line.  I have a filter that places such messages in
a separate file, and I review it perhaps every day or two.
So far about 95% of my spam is thus automatically
segregated.  I have noted that perhaps 1% of the messages so
designated are really non-spam that I want to read.  It
works well for me, and I'm on several other lists.

+++ Best regards to all.
