I just traded email with a friend of mine. My initial response to him included a swear word (I know, I know, apparently I am a little evil - but only prime-time-tv evil). Apparently our spam filter on our gateway rejects incoming mail due to language, but not outgoing email. That must actually cut down on a lot of email that's intended for me. :)
>Wow, chris can curse in his emails, but we can't curse in the emails to HIM.
