Dear spammer

If your message starts out with "I am a sweet and attractive young woman ...", it might behoove you to consult a dictionary of American baby names to find a name that would match that description. I'm afraid that signing the message "Ross Gordon" isn't going to cut it.

  1. Hahaha. I always laugh when I get those too even if they do have more female names since I am not a man nor a lesbian. I sometimes wonder about what those people must think of American men too because I have never ever received email spam that started out with "I am kind hunky man...". Now that I think about it, I've also never received any spam about the size of my vagina although I get a lot about the size of my penis. I hear that my penis just isn't big enough and you can't know how many times I've gone to sleep crying about *that* ;)

  2. If you meet a spammer on the street shoot him/her.

    Lynne, I posted a picture of my new boat top this morning.

  3. Um, I've never had any problem with my penis getting bigger, all it takes is the right woman.

  4. On the other hand, I received an email the other day from Ayesha Gaddafi. Now since I know her father was loaded and deposed, and the family stashed millions away, I *know* I can trust this one, right?


  5. The Nigerian spams are making into the real world. My wife contacted a too-good-to-be-true house rental ad.

    The 'owners' of the property said they were in west Africa, and would mail us the keys when they got our check.

    Also, if you see the house being advertised for sale, just ignore that.


  6. Funny.

    I just posted some 'umble ads on Criagslist, and am amazed at the stupidity of the scams:

    "Do you still have your comforter"


    "Oh, I'd love to buy it but my car was just totaled. I could sure use a little help ..."

    --Don't they GET it? I'm selling stuff b/c I'd like the buckaroos, and not to give to YOU?!?


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
