    Gain Size Today – Spamtastic!

     Posted in Anger Level 4 at 0:15 on Thursday, April 16th, 2009 by Mr. Rant

    Well, over the past week or so I have been inundated by junk email aka Spam.  I have had nearly 500 in three days to my main email account.  Interesting that most of these are to have my member increased in size and or girth! Joyful emails you see, pills galore and a marvellous amount of email pornography, most of this of course is spam filtered and then deleted, hooray.

    The problem is however; how do they get hold of my email address?  Mostly it comes from signing up to things on-line, forums which sell your details or the government most likely.  I’d like to think that somewhere someone in the Labour party is sending emails which contain defamatory remarks or offensive details…. Sounds familiar Good old Gordo encapsulated in a spin row, his aide resigns and no public apology.

    So after much ado about very little; I’ve set up an auto response system on my email account, it’s great fun when you get an email that is spam.

    My auto responder will reply as follows:

    “Hello ‘Gain Size Today’

    You’ve sent an email to this account haven’t you?  Well it would seem that I have the time to reply to your email and also I might be interested in your services! I bet you haven’t heard that one before! So instead of sending me a link to a virus come around and I’ll make us a nice cup of tea! Won’t that be lovely…

    If, of course,  you are genuinely interested in my website or want to use something on it, go to the page named: About and all the appropriate contact details are there! Simple eh?

    Kindest Regards,

    Mr. Rant”

    Usually I get another email back from the sender and my auto-responder sends them another email! It’s an endless loop of backwards and forwards, automated chatter! It’s fantastic fun and utterly pointless but that’s half the fun of spam email, it’s a good laugh to read and wonder who sent it!

    For the next week or so I’ll post every email I get in my spam box on the Spamtastic page!
