Fighting spam the Bill Gates way

Having a lot of money has it's benefits. Yahoo reports on Bill Gates fight against spam:

Bill Gates receives four million e-mails daily, most of them spam, and is probably the most "spammed" person in the world. But unlike ordinary users, the software mogul has an entire department to filter unsolicited e-mails and only a few of them actually get through to his inbox, Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer said here Thursday
Steve Ballmer said he was "probably also amongst the most spammed people in the world" because he gave out his e-mail address -- steveb [at] -- in all his public speeches. "I receive many pieces of spam (but) only about 10 of them actually make it into my inbox because of the spam technologies that our IT department implements."

While we wait for Microsoft to release this wonderful anti spam technology there is only one choice: get rich enough to get someone to filter your email.
