Spammers, why bother?

A waste of time and effort?

Recently I read that a large Spam related Bot Net has been shut down which resulted in a massive reduction in the amount of Spam being delivered across the Internet. This made me look a bit closer at the shit that is actually sent to my email account and whether or not its content is actually worth sending in the first place.

Let actually just analyse the content to see if it makes sense.

My comments are in blue of course..

Example No 1

Subject: ENLARGE YOUR MANHOOD 2-4 INCHES

Text:

So there you have it, a couple of examples of the absolute drivel that chokes up the internet and actually achieves absolutely nothing whatsoever. None of it ever makes it into my Inbox anyway for starters and even the Spam posts that attempt to be posted in this blog end up in a Spam filter as well!

Heh Mr Spammer, find something constructive to do with all your processor time instead of just pissing people off, using Network bandwidth and giving us all a laugh!
