I think the name of my next project will be RTFM

For crying out loud, must Rhizome wipe our asses for us, too? If you do not
like these e-mails, then make your inboxes delete anything with the header
From: mi_ga@o-o.lt. There are clearly no "hackers" left on this list if people
cannot even compose a goddamn mail filter. Just look in the help menu to
figure out how to do it. Everyone. Please. I am serious. RTFM.

I think the Rhizome staff has gone above and beyond for us all on this issue, and
I think they should deal with more important things now - things that they can
do for Rhizome that we cannot. Their jobs are more important than holding our
hands while we figure out how to use a keyboard or a man page. Instead of
keeping them awake at night, can we please just thank them for a job well done
by doing some things for ourselves?

    I made a 'rule' that deleted messages *from* mi_ga@o-o.lt but that didn't
    work, since the messages are from rhizome. After poking around a bit, yes, I
    found the option to delete messages where "mi_ga@o-o.lt" is in the header.
    And that seems to be working. However, I see the 'rule' is deleting not only
    messages sent by mi_ga@o-o.lt but the odd other message as well that is a
    reply to mi_ga@o-o.lt. So I guess such a filter is, by its nature, not only
    going to delete messages from whomever but also messages that reply to that
    whomever? Recursively? Would be nice if it could quite specifically delete
    *only* messages from the specified spammer.

    Now THAT was hilarious.

    Potentially agressive behavior tested and averted. Would you like your
    Reassurances in Greek?

    RTFM = UGoogle, and mail/a have many headers. From, sender, reply-to all
    different.
