If I get one more email with the subject "Bleeding Gums?" I'm going to scream.

That is all.

hehe, never had that one.

The subjects make spam almost bearable for me. Half the time I ending up laughing hysterically at some of them, especially to my hotmail account.

I recently started seeing the subject: Spam Alert

What's that, reverse psychology? Trying to create a brand?

I don't see what's so bad about spam.
I replied to them all and now I am a millionaire with a 12 inch ****.

I've been getting hundreds of 'Hi' and 'Hello' messages from someone with a e-mail from Michael

All spam isn't bad. Why, right now I'm corresponding with the wife of a deposed Nigerian dictator. She's having difficulty transferring $30 million out of the country, but now that I've given her my bank info (and a small up-front payment to help with her expenses) I should be seeing the money any day now. She's actually letting me keep $10 million of it for my trouble. It's amazing that she will trust me with her $20 million, too, but I guess that's what the web is all about.

I've also replied to a few of the nigerian dictators wives. I've not had a response though! Sheeesh you'd think they could at least reply if they get a bite...

This kind of thing used to be done via fax before the internet age. I worked in an investments company and we used to get them by the bucket load.

Friday afternoon after a beer or 4 at lunch we'd spend a goodly portion of the afternoon winding them up and leading them on.

Happy days.... ;)

diggle.

I'm still laughing at post #4. :)

Before this post, sometime yesterday I thought to myself. These poor souls. I wonder who doesn't have a relative in that part of the world who is not a relative of some deposed person or is not connected to the previous government.

Still LOL

Spam is good!
Spam is healthy!
Spam is proof that P.T. Barnum was indeed a genius.

Oh, btw for anyone associated with Yahoo!, hotmail, etc.
If ya'll have programmers bright enough to be able to detect spam and plop it into a Bulk or Junk mail folder, why aren't you bright enough to just delete it in the first place. Just think of all that server space which could then be devoted to all the other freaking spam ads you toss onto my screen anytime I visit.

The only good SPAM comes in a can, and like fruitcake,
should never, ever actually be consumed
