Have you ever bought anything from SPAM?

I notice I have probably about a 80:1 spam to real email ratio in my inbox. I run a hosting company and process about 120,000 spam messages/day on some of the busier servers... So my question is.. someone must be buying or there would be no reason to spam.. so who is it? Is it you?!

Seriously? Don't you think that will just encourage more Spam?

I asked a similar question the other day. Only mine was how do these spammers make any money? In answer to your own question, no I never open them, nor respond to them. And I would definitely not buy from anyone who solicits business this way. Nor do I know anyone who does or will admit it. So how do they possibly make any $$$ if they are universally loathed by every end user? Also I'm a little tired of being told by smammers I'm a little short in the manly department. I already know that because I a FEMALE! And my main email addy uses my real very feminine name! Good question!

I hate spammers and would not buy anything from a spammer, no matter how legit the product is. I think it should be illegal to send spam to people! If their product or service is so good, what is the need to send spam? They should know their target and be able to get to them some other way.
