Post by Senshi_of_Vision » Thu Mar 15, 2007 10:19 pm

I go in tonight and theres 20 spam mails of the same topic get yourself a replica watch, geniune imitation rolex...wth? Genuine Imitation? my god I feel like im back in Nyc being harrassed by a guy in a darn trench coat. Even with spam blocker these ridiculos emails still get in. Its crazy. If it wasnt for the fact that ive had that email for so many years its not even funny id just drop the darn account cause this is getting crazy.

Oh yes. I remember getting annoying E-Mails. They were so frustrating and there is almost nothing even remotely useful in there. How the heck do they even get our address? I have every firewall I could find and still it happens. It just really pisses me off.

LoL seiya I know exactly what you mean, they definately dont screen those things for male female emailers. The worst I got and for some good reason my spam blocker started blocking them were ads for granny porn. K I know there are some individuals that that kind of stuff floats their boats, but I personally dont need to see geriatrics get physical. And I sure as heck dont want it in my email.

After months of trying to figure it out I finally know what my email spam is telling me.

I need a penis enlargment to please the lonely housewives that's interested in me because of the low mortgage rates that I'm eligible to receive. I just need a penis and my own house.

Seriously though, spam ticks me off. It's less bad because gmail throws all my spam into my spam filter and I can delete everything in there with just two clicks (one to 'select all' and the delete button). But still, spam and mailing lists forwards are going to cause me to snap one day.
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

Even quicker (if, for example, you end up with over a page's worth of spam in Gmail >_>), just hit the "Delete all spam messages now" link, then "Yes" to confirm. This way, if you have over 100 or so, you don't have to do it for every 100 messages ^^.

Then consider it even less bad for me, because with Hotmail moving to Windows Live Mail, I very rarely (if ever at all) see anything like that. And if something does come through, WLM automatically blocks all the images and such in the message until I approve the sender. I usually don't and just delete it.

Yeah it sounds like im going to end up giving up this email account, the sailor moon rpg group I used to belong to disbanded anyway and that was the main function of that email to keep track of story lines. I can always transfer my web comics to another account cause yahoo just isnt getting it anymore. I dont even remember being a member to discount x whatever the heck that is and im not even going to bother opening the email to find out lol.

I am amused by subject lines that make no sense.

"but caterpillar tent"
"temperature of be cheap"

Well. Although my mail isn't as colorful as you guys and your mail. They are still as annoying as hell. I could get a 50-inch plasma TV if I put in my e-mail address.

Awwww. Spam.... The other end of the evil side in the computer world. No problems with my hotmail account. Looks like M$ is doing their job, unlike some companies. Has anyone seen my Sailormoon.com inbox? About 200 useless messages in just a couple of days all the time. Anti-spam policy my ass. They need to enforce it and tackle it better.

That one dude who was hacking into people's MySpaces and using them to post spam still pisses me off (I've been a victim). It was quite annoying looking in my inbox and getting messages from my best friend telling me to buy a new phone.

At least I got to laugh my ass off when he got sued for it. :lol:

a girl on my Myspace friend list got hacked, and everyone on her list got a comment about how she stole some penis enlargement pills from her brother and now her penis is huge so we should all buy some =D
at least it was a good laugh.

I think the worst are the nigerian money scams, before I started individually blocking their email addresses id get ten of them. And they all start the same way , they are either honorably asking my help, or telling me a relative of mine died. Now im sorry I know my family pretty well and save a small majority of us most dont know how to work their telephones safe a computer to email me. And none would email me that a relative had died even if its a distant obscured one. And while I maybe african in heritage, im pretty darn sure I dont have no nigerian aunts or uncles who own all this money just looking to pass it onto me ugh who falls for that crap?

If they get into your profile. Just use a new very difficult password. Make it like 24 or 32 characters as many as you can. Numbers, letters, symbols. Make it all random, but never sequences or words. It will deter any would-be. Be sure to write it down.

Something like this is really time-consuming to crack:

Yeah, but just be careful you don't forget it if you make a difficult one. I had that happen, and it gets annoying to make a new one every time.

If anybody is on MySpace, have you seen anything that starts off with, "All the girls out there are totally lying when they tell you that size does not matter. Want proof?"....

I am freakin seeing that on every damn comment page, many time more than once. It's so annoying. I haven't even read the whole thing. I'd rather not read about something that starts off like that. But it's one of the spam things that I wish would die. Quick.
