    (1) Create a throwaway address for political spam. I have an address I use for signing petitions and the like. It never gets used for anything else. It goes to a folder that I never read. If you create a brand new account in Hotmail or Gmail, you never have to log into that account unless you want to.

    (2) Most mail clients nowadays have a provision for filtering mail. Most of your political spam is going to come from a limited number of places - MoveOn, various Democratic political committees and candidates, the AARP and similar organizations, what have you - and you can filter any mail from those addresses and/or institutions to go into either your spam folder or otherwise dispose of it (e.g. in Gmail I mark them read and archive them).

    Note that there's no mention of unsubscribe links. I find it more effective to take an active role in keeping unwanted mail out of my inbox than just clicking a link and hoping whoever's on the other end isn't just using that link to check for the presence of intelligent life on my end.

    Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
