Dealing With Spam
Checking e-mail has become a much more time consuming process lately, with all of the viruses and spam filling in-boxes. Rather than just download our mail into our main Eudora e-mail program, we first look over the in-box contents via Mail2Web. It's not uncommon to delete over three-quarters of the messages before even starting up Eudora.
Dave Barry has a good take on this spam influx in today's column. While he claims that if he were to meet an actual spammer face to face, he would take him to lunch at his company's industrial waste cafeteria, I'm not so sure I would be as polite if I ever meet one of these low-lifes. A swift kick to the groin would be an irresistible reflex reaction. In fact, I'm amazed that we haven't had more vigilante justice to deal with these spamming scumbags. A visit to their computers with a baseball bat would do wonders for reducing the outgoing volume.
