SPAM simply SPAM
I have written about this before I even provided an address one could write to and forward a suspected spam e-mail to if it was spam and trust me folks you will be able to tell if it is spam and make no bones about it here it is again; firstname.lastname@example.org this is the mob to send them too it worked for a while but the spammers just changed various things in their mails; in occasional letters I get from folk some insist their yahoo mail gets a hammering from spam whereas their gmail address does not.
My gmail address does cop 100’s of them this came to my attention AGAIN purely as a result of reading an article in the Melbourne age arguing this very point with Australia’s largest Telco versus the Google giant; of course there could be much more here that has not been revealed like for example the Telco in question may supply anti spam WITH A PRICE OF COURSE this does happen what really bugs me is the fact that a lot of these anti spam mobs are free so why pay your provider for a free one, a good question that and at the moment of writing I have not worked out the reason why.
This is exactly the same as my provider supplying an anti virus (in my case AVG) for a charge of course it can be got free if you go and get it yourself and it’s a very good one along with several other free anti virus programmes on offer.
This is slyly done of course and a newcomer to the net or web would have absolutely no idea; in the beginning I know I purchased a well known brand but found others are just as good and in some cases better the added clincher is they’re also free, mine cost about A$89 at the time but is lower now I believe.
Getting back to SPAM I have noticed of late I am receiving more and more via my providers address as well as gmail,
Some I notice even have my yahoo address on them and yet I DO NOT ALLOW YAHOO TO COME INTO MY INBOX AS A POP 3 CLIENT food for thought huh.
Are they all in league with each other or what? it’s a logical question and should be asked; since I rarely if ever get comments I shall ask my youngest son he seems to be rather good on all things computer related, providing I can pry him off his computers that is, he has even been known to ignore his telephone at times (a bad sign or leave me alone message) yes well I can wait until the morrow I mean what’s one more day.
Now where was I ah yes world cup cricket I admit I had the most delightful shock upon reading THAT Bangladesh had upset the applecart again and routed the South Africans; yes I spelt routed correctly ok lol
This in turn puts strain on the old enemy
Now this has definitely stuffed up a few things my oh my I like it.
I do think however this event has been stretched out a tad long, even the stoic Matt Hayden was whinging about it and that is not like him at all.
I do feel sorry for the hosts the
Another study would you believe
It would seem that if both the male and the female smoke there is little chance of them having a girl such crap my wife and I smoked and we had two of each gender.
We did of course have friends who never smoked but the same result applied to them just the same; sometimes I think these Studies go to far out of context to be taken seriously.
Nuff said I think
