Sierra Sara Block?
 

Maybe we need a filter that deletes all messages that have one sentence containing more 125+ words.

Re: Sierra Sara Block?
 

There is some kind of rodent out there that creates messages just to infest fora.  It usually contains a fake return eddress and the body contains fake URL that causes the spread of a virus or two.  The identifying feature is that it is usually a  single sentence of over 150 - 200 words and no punctuation. (Hence the block as mentioned)

I received one relayed from here lately but I deleted it.  I see that the one posted here has been deleted.  This most recent one was from "Sierra Sara".
