Agreed. (I use mutt and amaya or w3m for mail/web.) But -- and maybe
this is an artifact of how I've organized my work -- I never load content
directly from a mail message into a web browser. I'll snip specific
URLs, I'll sometimes use curl to fetch a page (or curlmirror to fetch
many pages), sometimes I'll go through an anonymizer (if I think it's
a spammer's site), and so on. Yep, it's definitely more work that way:
but not *much* more, and it puts me in the loop...where *hopefully*
I'll notice anomalies before I act on them. ;-)
