We're using “bacon” to describe a lesser class of email? Yikes. I understand why we use the word “spam”, but as a member of the species carnivorous baconis I am disappointed to see the good name of bacon dragged into this!
We have an email set up for bacon, as well as for requested daily stuff (Dilbert cartoon for me, a couple dozen things for my wife). It's not a truly separate account though, as we auto forward everything to the main email address. The whole intent of this email address was to be able to kill it off at a moment's notice if it starts becoming a spam magnet – with no effect to the main email address.
Evan – I figured out why your comments on The Casual Observer were getting tagged as spam. For some reason, you were on the blacklist. This has been fixed. Not sure why that happened.
