DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Annette=== Dear Webby, I am a new subscriber. You probably have answered my question a dozen times and I apologize for asking something this obvious. Why is that CAN-SPAM law not working, and what is the best way to reduce spam? Thanks Annette Dear Annette The CAN-SPAM law is working, for the spammers. It caused a 28% increase in spam. It was a bit naive of Bush to entrust the House and the Senate with something that important to the economy, but that's the way laws are made in the US. Since so many of them are spammers themselves, it was like asking them to come up with a law that would reduce their exorbitant pensions. They definitely stabbed their president in the back with that one. Forget waiting for any help from that quarter. What does work is MailWasher. That is why I am carrying that big blue FireTrust MailWasher button in the side menu. You can try it for free and upgrade to the full version later if you like it. Have FUN Dear Webby
