I think these days computers have more Software guarding and monitoring and attacking other Software that they think might be Looking At Them The Wrong Way than they have actual Software that Does Things.

On a related note, Gmail just tagged an email from Google about Google as a "promotion", which I guess is Gmail's polite word for "spam".

Microsoft Oi Yer Wot for Enterprise Hey Get Off Of That Ya Varmints

@natecull The rule of thumb is simple: everything that comes from outside GMail is spam, everything that comes from within is a promotion.

@natecull Google once failed a GSoC student I was responsible for, because they had spambinned their own registration email to said student and student was therefore late registering.
Since then I'm less suspicious of the intelligence of their spam system overall..
