SPAM


I know I've written about my SPAM mail before, but it just bugs the heck out of me. Why are people allowed to send anything at all to every mailbox they can reach? It
raises my hackles every time I go in and see over 600 emails that I have no interest in receiving. You'd think at least they would have to target their audience appropriately. I'm doubly annoyed when some manage to sneak past my SPAM filter and make it into my inbox. Lately, yahoo has been sending my regular mail to SPAM so I forced to weed through it. Hence this venting blog. :)

This is a sampling of what I deleted:

WANT TO SLIM DOWN IN TWO DAYS?
Of course, I do, but I'm sure if it was possible the United States wouldn't have the obesity statistics reported. No, I don't want to lop off a limb or take a diurectic that removes all my fluids to lose 20 pounds, nor do I want to do what the next email offered...

CLEANSE YOUR COLON.

I saw about five of these in the mix. Why is someone concerned with my colon and its level of cleanliness. I rather consider this way to personal to discuss with someone I've never met. How about you?

FOOT PATCH - DETOX YOUR BODY WHILE YOU SLEEP.
Maybe if I wore the patch people wouldn't be so concerned with my colon. Egads, there's a sucker born every minute, but I refuse to be one of them.

CREDIT ANALYZER - NEVER MAKE ANOTHER CREDIT CARD PAYMENT
Wow, this one appeals to me, but do I believe it? Hell no. If you never make another payment, you're credit will be analyzed automatically. You'll become the next topic of a country music song... lose you house, your car, your guitar... Why pay someone to help you find your way to bankruptcy?

INCREASE THE LENGTH OF YOUR PENIS

Ain't got one. How many people named Ginger do you suppose do? Okay, Ginger Baker was a drummer for Cream, but other than him...

INCREASE THE WIDTH OF YOUR PENIS
Still ain't got one. I'm happy with the one I borrow from time to time. :)

PREMIER BANK CARD - INSTANT APPROVAL

Why not. If I use credit analyzer advertised above and never have to pay again... Right!

EHARMONY CONNECTIONS
Shouldn't these go to single people. I doubt my husband would appreciate me trying to find a match while he's still around.

PERFECT LITTER - GET A WEEK WEEK SUPPLY

Don't have cat, and if it pertains to trash, I don't want any of that either. We make enough around here. Can't imagine what I'd do with two weeks of free kitty litter, but it gives me something to blog about.

HEY-WANNA SEE MY PICS
No, I'm pretty sure I don't. I think these are the emails that lead to kiddy porn showing up on your computer.

CAREERS IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE

This might be the only one of interest, but only if I don't pay my credit card bill, become a bigamist, or accidentally look at pictures that implant porn on my computer.

I could go on and on and on. The titles are so ridiculous, and I wish we could write back and tell the idiots who sent them to stop, but I imagine they are just people like you and me who are trying to work from home and make a buck. With gasoline, food, clothes, and everything else costing so much these days, who can really blame them. I feel a tad sorry for them when I think about it in that way, but I feel sorrier for me being their target. If you're out there, reading this, I don't have a penis. Get over it.

Hugs!
