I love spam; not the type that you find on the internet, but the type that comes in a can. In the past, I have been bombarded by spam, with as many as 30 per day, every day. In just the past couple of days, my spam has dropped to maybe 3 per day. Not that I’m complaining, but something has happened that I can’t explain. Even the content of the few spams I’ve received have changed. Previously my spam messages have ranged from “meet Russian ladies” to “improve your sex life”. Now the few I receive are in the form of legitimate offers, like magazine subscriptions. I wonder if anyone else has experienced a drop in spam messages in their inbox.

Ron – something that I have noticed in the recent years that when you get
the same one over and over, I would go to their website and “UNSUBSCRIBE”.
I would get the generic “sorry to see you go” . . . then a few days later,
I was bombarded out of nowhere with similar spams.
so I am thinking that when you respond one, your email goes on an “active mail”
list and is passed, traded or sold to other spam companies.
also – I read that if you even run your mouse cursor over it, it will also recognize that
you are an active mail address.
so with that knowledge, I am very careful not to disturb the sleeping dog and just delete
it right away without touching it with the cursor.
you might want to try that and see if it slows down any.

Spam. Yeesh. Here’s a meal for those of you who may like it-

SPAM, Velveeta and Miracle Whip on Hostess white bread. You won’t find any of those substances in our house. YMMV.

This morning when I logged on to my e-mail, there were no spam messages at all; first time that has happened. I wonder if it has anything to do with new legislation over unsolicited e-mail.

Have your say...
