Spammers Have Low Esteem Of You

spamYesterday I was going through my email and unfortunately a some spam was not “caught” by gmail. I was getting rid of these messages when I accidentally reported a bona fide email as spam. I then had to go through the spam folder to find this message. The total of spam I had was 988! Well actually it was 987 since I knew of one good email in that folder. I decided to go through all this spam to see if any other good message was redirected there by accident.

After a few minutes of reading the subject line of quite a few spam messages, I realized that apparently there is three things that I can’t live without according to the spammers. The first is, of course, porn. All types of porn. They are advertising porn for every tastes, or should I say bad taste? (I am not sure at this point). The second item I cannot live without according to the spammers goes hand in hand with porn, it is Viagra. Well of course if you look at porn and are a man you have to have an erection therefore the obvious solution is Viagra. If this does not work I have a few spam recommending Cialis for rock bottom prices! How can I refuse an offer like that?

Spammers have their finger on the pulse of what I need since the third most received spam in my junk mail folder was Microsoft Office 2007 OEM. Well of course! How could I not see this before? When I am done using Viagra or Cialis which goes hand and hand with all the porn I need to see I have to write about it, make a list of what I have seen, and email Powerpoint presentations of all my internet porn sites and what the results are of using Viagra/Cialis! How could I have been so blind for so long? Now that the spammers have opened my eyes, I have decided to join their ranks to spread the good news.

I think the most annoying spam messages for me are the Microsoft ones. The porn industry have always been after money anyway they can get it. In the last decade or so we have seen pharmaceutical company are just as bad, or even worst than the porn industry, the are now creating medicines for non-existing diseases. I have said it before and I’ll repeat it: Microsoft is plain old evil. They want to control everything in the computer world. They are trying to take over the portable mp3 world with Zune, they are trying to control the game console by taking on Sony (another evil entity). They have always believed that they can dictate what we can put in our computers and if they see some other Operating System taking more market share from them they threaten them with law suits. I’ll stop now before they sue me.

Thank goodness for spam filters. I have a few email addresses and I used to have one just for subscribing to forums or just every site that asks you for an email address to read an article, because they will sell this address to spammers. I haven’t been using this address since I moved to gmail as my email client of choice. I will dust off my old Hotmail account (leave the spam to Microsoft) and start using it again just for this purpose. I recommend you do the same.

p.s. Are you glad that I did not go down the low road and say that porn and Viagra/Cialis go penis and hand together? I did not even mention that after taking Viagra/Cialis Microsoft becomes Macrohard.
