I have received none. But then I run Linux (Ubuntu). With Linux you just don’t have problems with spywear, virus, or junk. Windows is just a horrible OS. Mac OS is not much better. Linux is not hard to learn. Its actually easy to learn. The Gnome GUI (Graphic User Interface) is similar in operation to Windows OS. The KDE GUI is similar to Mac OS. No costly upgrades. Open source software is free. IMO Ubuntu is the easiest version of Linux to learn.

Since they are sending PM’s through this specific website, it shouldn’t matter what OS you are running. The e-mails that I’ve gotten have all been from the RAGBRAI site informing me that I’ve gotten a PM, not from the spammers themselves.

If the spam is coming through PM. Then the spam attack is on the RAGBRAI server. Your machines OS has no effect on this. Unless you open an email that is a Trojan horse. But if the spam, virus, spyware, etc is coming directly to you. Then what OS you use makes a big difference. The inherent security and stability of Linux stops this junk. Then if you add a stable and secure client like Thunderbird. Turn on the filtering. Then you will stop this crap dead in its tracks. I’ve been a Linux convert for over 2 years. Not one problem with the OS. The computer always runs fast. No junk and no virus. Not to mention free upgrades and free software.
