I don't remember saying I wanted it that way.

Basically I don't like just reporting SPAM to and then
getting email with a URL to connect to and then send the SPAM.  To
much work, especially given the volume.  The main reason I submit
spam reports is to build their database up so maybe it will have
some positive impact.  

I haven't even looked at IMP webmail yet.
