I am not in the market for office software, not even at “bottom prices”. I do believe you when you say your software is 2-10 times cheaper than your competitors, but I have all the software I need right now. I also agree that $89.95 is a great deal for Windows XP Professional + Office XP Professional, thanks. I am not sure if I’ll make it to your Web site anytime soon, although your Web address is quite memorable, “http://oeuujgrftcavou98mx.digreceam.info” just flows right off the tongue.
Seriously though, I’ve done the math, I get it, I know spam works. But can’t you let me opt out of the stuff which simply does not apply? I am not in need of a mortgage, a university diploma, larger breasts, viaggra (or viaagra, or even vi-AGRA), and I really don’t have the time to become a secret shopper.
I’ve read a few reports recently which talk about spam emails finally showing signs of decline. I guess it’s possible. All I can tell is two things:
1) I get tons of spam, to just about every email address I have.
2) I no longer have any confidence that when I send an email to someone they actually get it, because their spam filter may have decided I am risky, simply because I attached a picture to the email!
I heard about the Russian spammer who was killed for spamming. This is not a good thing. But maybe it will make Vanessa J Smith and her Windows software, Lonnie Nieves and his replica Rolex watches, and Laurelle Spangler’s pharmacy think twice before adding another million names to their lists.
You know, I’m not one to preach violence, but looking at this from an ethical standpoint I can see how it couldd be justified:
Assuming that because killing someone is about the worst thing you can do to someone, we assign it a badness value of 1000. Now even though a single spam message might be one of the least bad things you could do to someone, rating numerically at about 1/100, the guy sent out over a million spam emails. 1/100 x 1 million > 1000 therefore justice is done.
The idea that Vanessa must die I completely agree with! It’s nothing like opening your e-mail and finding out that your school account, (from a school you no longer attend at that,) has clogged your account with her Adobe Photoshop mail. The best part is some people are dumb and hit “respond all” instead of “respond sender” and you have about 30 extra e-mails filling your spam folder because of “her”!
