How many ways to spell @#$%&

After having to change my email rules yesterday to include Viazgra to my spam list, today I get a batch of VIAGeRA emails.

Why?

Because so many have added it to their email rules. They'll keep spelling it weird, putting spaces in, etc., to circumvent the typical spam blocker and rules set-ups. It's like trying to swat every fly at a picnic; you'll get a bunch but not all.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

I understand the economics of spam (essentially zero cost to sned to the entire internet), but you'd think that every sucker who would be interested in @#$%&, organ enlargement, mortgage refinancing, penny stocks, etc. would have long been parted from his money.

raz, it was once said that there's a sucker born every minute. So there will always be suckers waiting to be parted from their money.

that was PT Barnum, (also 'nobody ever lost money understimating the intelligence of the average American'), but seriously ... how many people just get a marginally English email and say to themselves "oh boy, here is a perfect stranger to whom I can send money for illicit drugs"? or "that poor Nigerian princess, of course I'll help her get her millions out of the country. I'm just glad she contacted me instead of some shady group like a Swiss bank".

It's not like either of these are remotely legal or less than trivial for the feds of either country to track.

How stupid do you have to be to send these guys money?

Lots of people suffer a severe drop in IQ whenever certain situations arise: for example, whenever they get behind the wheel of a car or are told that they can get something for nothing.

More than you might think. I've seen begal, bagle, etc.

More mysteriously, a vendor whose cart I used to see on 42nd St. sold "butted rolls".

I don't call them suckers when they fall for that crap, I call them stupid.

It might be difficult to believe but the most vulnerable are the elderly ... old age does soften one's heart, and the ignorance.
