Just once, I had to reply to one the cockamamie get-rich-quick-nigerian-prince-bank-officer SPAMs that hit my inbox 10 times a day. No need to paste the email here. You've all seen them before, but here's what I wrote back to this joker:<br><br>DEAR MR.DATTI:<br><br>I AM INDEED INTERFUGIATED TO ACCEPT YOU OFFER.PLEASE TO TELLING ME WITH ALL DUE SCHMEGMA HOW I CAN ACQUIRE THIS MOST RECLAPRIDUDINAL SUM OF MONEYS.I WILL AWAIT WITH MOST NOXIOUSNESS YOUR PROMPT REPLY.<br><br>THANKYOU, AND HAVE A MOST CALAMARIOUS DAY.<br><br>MOST INGESTED REGARDS TO YOU AND YOUR BACTERIA!<br>LAZLO KATARACT.<br><br>P.S. MY FEET ARE ODOROUS WITH ANTICIPATION.<br><br><br><br>
I'm sure he did. <br><br>People who reply to Spam e-mails go on a "sucker list," because they have confirmed their address is an active one. Therefore, the spam multiplies by an order of about...oh...1,000% <br><br>
That sucks. I've had my .mac since it was first introduced and I'm amazed that I have as little spam as I do and I attribute most of that to a cousin who would find these "cute" flash movies and click the "send to a friend" button instead of just sending me a link, which I begged her to do several times. Honestly, don't people like this understand that no one puts a site up giving something away for free just for the hell of it?<br><br>
