daryn Posted July 27, 2007 Share Posted July 27, 2007 a little over 300 Spams just today. Thanks to Spamcop, a good portion of those can be discarded in a single 5 minute sweep. but still, I now have to go to a website log in, sort through a list for anything important, just to throw out spam.... not my idea of a hobby.. then I got to thinking.... Yes, I know the spam theory, send a million emails for free, and if some fool sends you a check for $100 worth of Viagara that you never send to him, you are $100 ahead for free. but... I have to think that anyone that would send me 30 offers for Viagara with practically the same (one letter different) subject line every time, and do it every day, HAS to be up to more than just trying to fool me into sending $100. Doesn't the vast numbers make it more likely I'll know its a scam?? Wouldn't it be MORE profitable to send only ONE email, every couple days and try to distance yourself from the rip-offs??? Wouldn't more people be fooled if there was a shred of plausibility???? So... I gotta think... is there somethign else going on here? Some vast conspiracy to disable and discredit email as a communications media... Some insidious corporate monopoly poised to fill the void. And when I think insidious corporate monopoly in media, only two entities come to mind, (excluding Banks, who don't care who is making money, cause it all goes through them), and those are the cable company, who I blame for pretty much everything, and the phone company, who not only make money off of spam as an industry, but will make even more if spam won out. so maybe that explains it... spam doesn't APPEAR to be a good marketing too... but its a positive cash flow... but the end-game is to push us all back to telephones and then raise the long distance rates again once we've given up on email.... might be something to it.. *wink* Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
