I was going along with the "just ignore it" approach last time it came
up. But at this point I have to agree with Wolfgang that the
situation is getting really bad. Enough so to be significant even
though I have a high speed Internet link; if I had a dialup link I
would have been forced to unsubscribe some time ago.
Wolfgang's suggestion makes sense. Another approach that would help
some, though presumably it wouldn't be politically acceptable, is to
reject any mesage that has a "*.cn" hostname in its forwarding path.
