Don't you just hate it when you get loads of spam in your mailbox, saying
"Don't you just hate it when you get loads of spam in your mailbox?"

I got about 15 yesterday telling me how to increase my penis size.

It would help if spam was relevant!

Likewise about me and augmenting my breasts. I mean, yeah I could do with dropping my breasts down a cup size, but damn!

Ahh, see you're actually shooting yourself in the foot there. But clicking on the 'unsubscribe' link, you're confirming to the spammer that your email address is valid... thus you get more 'targeted' spam!

Sucks, don't it.

One of those moods

I feel like doing a quick spam message myself - something along the lines of:-

Subject: This is not a spam message....

I hate spam, getting near 100/day again, how I would love to meet these spammers!

Re: One of those moods

Yeah, but spammers are doing this already...

Subject: It was nice to talk to you the other day

Oh the irony! I bet the spammers don't appreciate it half as much as the recipients of their spam.

I've recently cut down on a lot of my spam. Actually all of it to my personal email addresses, still get some through yahoo and hotmail. I installed a spam and antivirus filter in our home email server and they never make it to my client. Well worth the 15 mins installing and configuring it. :D
