I hate spam

I love how spam nowadays comes in all shapes and forms. They now have little tricks to stop spam filters from blocking them, like saying Hi Richard! at the beginning of the post or by selling v!@gr@ p!lls instead of viagra. On top of that, I enjoy the Kenyan ambassador's plea for me to inherit his $25 million dollars from an offshore bank account into my American account for protection from his federal government. He'll even share half of it with me! Anyone else get some crazy spam?

I keep receiving ones that have nothing in the from or the subject line; they are just totally blank. I have talked to my internet provider and they are trying to catch these and not even let them through to the mailbox, but they are not having any luck so far. All of them come from different addresses when I do a properties check on them to add to the block list, so this is never ending for me. I forward it to my provider and then I mark it as spam. That is all I guess I can do for now.

Look at my above comment if you want to use that AVG client... I would definitely recommend it if you use Outlook, Thunderbird, Netscape or any other Pop3/Smtp client to open your mail. If you open your mail from a website, the website probably already does virus checking for you.

I hate spam too. I hate how they are always trying to sell you pills for member enlargement or how they are always congratulating you for winning some crazy stuff. I wish there was a way to put a stop to this.
