QUESTIONS FOR SPAMMERS
Who are spammers?
Why do they do what they do?
Since I do web design part time and have created
over 500 web pages, as well as numerous Real Jukebox Skins and Windows Media
Player skins, my email address is "out there" thus giving spammers a easy way to
get a hold of me. On a typical day I receive over 200 emails, 99.9997% are
I have some questions for these Spammers.
- If you are selling a product, then why cant
you spell its name with LETTERS?
IE: V1@gRa is that a word? how about Nrtn Systm Wrks - is this the
Buy a vowel version of Norton Systems Works?
- How do you know I'm bald, fat, and need pills
for mr happy (or would he be Mr Sad?)?
This one is the one that scares me the most, is it true that my monitor
doubles as a camera? That one could be REALLY scary.
- What makes you think that I am going to
purchase a product that's description looks like my 3 year old son got to the
keyboard and banged away at it for 20 mins.
IE: "AAJDRNBCM. BVDJFEBKLXUH. LEAVFA.. o699PNQxKh NWZZEWDXLFA. mh855q36e6.
ph2ylk1tl6. t4mwmqudbi. noxt841uux.wlsizx2ca8. s75ng16258.4tp16e28b1.
fglrm4tmhh. un1tui3t2n. nmyday3hzo. vh8w5e2w69. eppfxdqzbi. qh92nm2mtu.
chn91217db. 68ro0n2pch. 6do6421t8c."
What does this mean? What are you trying to sell me? A new Keyboard?
- I would love to purchase the entire Microsoft
Product line for $25 but do you really think I'm going to believe that its
- Do you think that by calling me by name "Dear
David... or better yet Dear RomanDA" that I'm going to think "Hey this guy
must be ok, he knows my name!"?
- Why do your emails not have a phone number,
or link to a web site? How can I take advantage of this incredible offer
you have sent me?
I'm just not sure why your sending all these
emails if you cant spell the name, describe the product, or even give me a web
link to your site to purchase it.
Is your only goal to send as many emails as possible? Because if its to
actually sell something, all the above things apply.
I would love to get a SPAMMER to answer these
questions, or at least send me their email address as I have so many GREAT
AMAZING ASTOUNDING Offers to send them.
My BIGGEST PET PEEVE
As for those people that HAVE TO HIT the FORWARD
button on EVERY Email, I just want to know why?
- Would you give your best friends, and family
members all the phone numbers in your "little black book"?
- Do you REALLY think Bill Gates is going to
give you $100 for EVERY email you forward?
If so, I am SURE someone out there would figure out a way to send emails to
MILLIONS of people (not sure who would EVER do that).
- Do you really think I want to see an animated
mouse/elf/pig/squirrel/etc dance on my screen?
Does ANYONE other then a 60+ to under 12 person care about these stupid
- If this email is sooooo dang important that
you cant resist sending it to 1000000 people, can you not just copy/paste the
1 single dang line with the link to the web site, into a NEW email and send
WHY oh WHY Dear Lord do I need to open 200 ATTACHED Emails with 200-300 lines
in them, just to get to the LAST one that has
- I believe that the FORWARD button should be
REMOVED from ALL email program, this simple thing would stop so many emails
from making the rounds.
- As for these "IMPORTANT INFO" that someone
has sent to you regarding the "US MAIL IS GOING TO CHARGE $.10 / Email".
Can you not take 20 seconds to open GOOGLE and type in the stupid subject of
the email, to see if this is actually a REAL thing?
I receive about 10 of these A DAY from Well meaning friends that think the
world is going to end because KFC cant use the word Chicken any longer.
If you are so scared about this info, couldn't you at least look up this
before you scare the crap out of 1000 of your closest neurotic friends?
- As for these "PLEASE UPDATE YOUR INFO ASAP"
emails, I have only one thing to say "THINK".
THINK about who you are sending your info to. Just because you see a
link in an email
www.americanexpress.com doesn't mean that when you CLICK on it its going
to take you to that site.
If you move your mouse over that link, and the POPUP Doest show the exact
info, then why are you clicking on it?
- Also, NO COMPANY is going to send you a email
telling you to send them all your personal info, not in this day and age.
At most they will tell you to login to their site, by typing in the REAL
address for the site.
Just take the 10 seconds to THINK before you
- If this is a joke, think "is this appropriate
for the people I'm gonna send it to?"
- if its a "email chain letter" think 1 thing..
DELETE IT! then there is nothing else to think about!
- If this is something of "value" can I take 1
min to "clean it up" so that the next person will have a nice clean email to
And my most important advice on Forwarding
emails........1 word...... D O N T!
These are just my thoughts, if you have others,
email me, everyone else does. Just PLEASE try and use REAL words in the
