Spam

Postby knapplc » Sat Jan 13, 2007 3:00 pm

We all get spam, and we all get the predictable kinds of spam - Viagra, hoodia, penis enlargement, Africa scams, etc. But the one kind of spam that I keep getting that I don't understand is printer ink. Maybe it's because I don't own a printer, but I think this kind of spam is really odd.

Do you guys get printer ink spam? Have you ever looked at it? I've never opened it, so maybe it's really a link to porn sites or something, but just in general it seems like a pretty odd thing to try to sell through spam.

Gmail is pretty good at blocking spam, so I don't get much anymore.

And no... I don't get printer ink spam (that I know of....).

I really don't get any spam whatsoever. I use hotmail and I get the occasional build your own website stuff, but that's about it.

I use hotmail and that's where I get most of my spam. That's weird.

I don't get very much spam, I find that if you give them an alternative email address when your signing up for something that you really don't care about you don't get as much spam.

try http://10minutemail.com/10MinuteMail/index.html

it creates an email address and then immediately discards it after 10 minutes... Kinda cool

Immediately after 10 minutes?? :-? :-b

No, I have Hotmail and get no spam. Meaning I haven't gotten one piece in over 4-5 months. I am very careful about where I put my main e-mail at though. My spam account is mailto:spamiskillingme@hotmail.com I try to check it once a month to keep it active. :-b ;-D
