This is just a short rant on the difference between getting information and getting useful information. At OpenNMS we try to build tools that solve problems – not just ones that look pretty.

If you KNOW the mail had a fake FROM address, then why in the hell are you mailing ME about it?!?


Time to filter “GateDefender” at the postfix level.
