I have a procedure for dealing with spam that is at least partially
successful.  In case a spammer reads this newsgroup, however, I do not
want to make it public.  If you want my procedure, reply in this

Trump again proves he is a major source of fake news.  He wants
to cut off disaster funds to repair the damage caused by the

through any forests.
