Check out this nonsense…

Just a few days ago I stopped deleting the contents of the spam locker just to see how ridiculous the numbers could get, and overnight the count went over five figures.

Yeah, over ten thousand individual examples of that gibberish. I really don’t understand the point of it. Somewhere a spambot server has completely lost its mind.

    Spam is spam. Giving more than an odd moment in contemplation of it is a sure pathway to madness. I’d be much more concerned with the twenty four thousand odd “approved” missives. While I’m fairly sure living alone in the desert gives you more time than the average guy to devote to wherever your fancy may take you, dividing 24000 messages by 3600 seconds available in each hour gives a total of over seven hours to peruse the influx at the rate of one per second. Wow!

    Somewhere someone is trying to get you to click on one or more of those messages in order to take control of your computer (if it isn’t already controlled), hack into your computer, add your computer to a spam network or to a list of known real IP addresses that are active in order to sell them to another spammer. It’s all about money and control. There are more teen age millionaires driving very expensive cars (not paying taxes of course) in third world countries than seems possible, but there they are. They aren’t feeding the hungry, contributing to building and maintaining water purification systems, building medical clinics, libraries and schools in their countries (we do all of that and more with taxpayer supported foreign aid), but they do drive expensive new cars.

    A politician said “Just say no to drugs”. A shoe company said “Just Do It!”. I say “Don’t click on it!”

    “don’t click on it”. If nobody clicked on spam, if nobody ever bought shit from telephone solicitors, spam and junk phone calls wouldn’t exist because there would be no profit in them. But human nature says that enough people will keep clicking and keep talking to phone scammers to keep this annoying industry going on forever. (sigh)
