I hate spam

I hate spam. Really hate spam. It used to be no big deal. Sure, I would get plenty but I would just empty the whole bulk folder at once and be done. Now because sometimes Ebay spits one the bulk for no particular reason, I have to be careful what I trash. I am talking about 200-300 everyday in my bulk folder and another 10-15 that make it into my inbox.

Yahoo has one of the worst reputations for spamming. I want to get an address through my domain hosting, but I haven't figured out how to set up my SMTP correctly.

I am tired of being asked if I want a bigger penis.

Or if I want to meet local busty black singles.

Or if I like Coke or Pepsi better.

Or being teasingly offered a $1000 gift card to Victoria Secret only to find out I need to sell my soul to get it.

Do you seriously think that I am going to respond to an email from my refinancing counselor at a bank I have never heard of?

Or that I believe that I really won the Australian Lottery?

I don't want to get a student loan.

Or tell you if I like Letterman or Leno better.

And stop inviting me to be your MySpace friend, when I don't even have a MySpace page.

Oh, and seriously? Stop with the spams that are titled "Read This".

I still chuckle at the penis enlargement spams, but you're right, they are tres annoying!

Oh I totally agree with you. Yahoo is the worst. I have that one + hotmail + my own domain one & while hotmail can be bad too, Yahoo is the worst by far.

I hate spam. My yahoo email does the same thing. Every so often a "real" email gets mixed in with my spam, so I can't just dump the whole bulk mail file. Gmail is much better which is why I use that one more often.

Tag you are it. I tagged you on a meme sent to me since you commented on a similar meme way back in March of last year. Come over and see the questions.
