I hate spammers...

Latest BS Spam I'm getting now offer "fear" filled subject lines, such as "Chinese aircraft downs American Plane" and "Terrorists attack Supreme Court, Sen. [name omitted] killed".

What is up with these jackals?

Now that I'm ready for it, it's one thing, but opening your e-mail and seeing subject lines like that will sure startle you.

I think the anti-spam laws should include a death sentence.

Or at least a term at Abu Ghraib.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

Hi Greg,

The ones I'm getting tired of are those trying to "Enlarge my Penis" or to "Buy Viagra, Cialis, or Levitra Online".

What I really want to know is this: How do SO many people know that I have a small one that no longer becomes erect?

LOL,

Enjoy the ride,
Mm

I dunno -- that stuff is pretty easy to ignore. It's telephone terrorism that needs to stop. Death to all phone solicitors!

Hey Ron,

Since I gave all of my phone numbers to donotcall.gov those phoners have dropped down to a trickle. The only ones who call me now, are those with whom I do business (Discover Card is the worst I do believe) or those with whom I have dealt in the not-too-distant past.

Thank you for this opportunity to speak to all of you about my fantastic new investment opportunity. This is your opportunity as well, an opportunity to get in on the ground floor by investing in shares of my new Nigerian Email Offers venture. In addition to purchasing shares at the IPO price of a mere $50 per share, shareholders also get first notification of some of the fabulous deals coming out the Nigerian financial markets, giving a way to turn your minimum $3,000 investment into millions. Did you know that there are hundreds of Nigerian princes who need your help in transfering their huge financial assets into America? Since they are not legally able to put their $300 million and up dollar fortunes into American accounts, they will pay you millions to use yours, minus a small commission for Feel The Love Enterprises. Instructions will soon be arriving in your email! And don't forget, we cannot process your application without your Social Security number, and the number of the account you wish to place the prince's princely sums into! And get ready to Feel The Love!

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Jesus H Christ FeelTheLove, it seems that you have noticed that quite a few of those spammers are in (or seem to be) in Nigeria. I think a few are in other places, but the SOBs keeps sending me spam too.

FYI: Forward those craps to spam@uce.gov because there are some people there who are trying to catch those spamming bass turds. FWIW, they seem to have a bottomless email inbox, because I have been forwarding them this sh*t for over a year, and they have never bounced back.

Not only have I noticed, I am consolidating and doing mergers in the industry. Have I mentioned my Dominican phone service ? For more info, dial 01-992-555-1212. Charges may apply.
