Profile Of A Spammer

from the sometimes-you-want-to-shake-people-who-just-don't-get-it dept

Yet another profile of a spammer. It seems that all of these spammer profiles have a few things in common. It’s always a single person working out of their home who is vaguely antagonistic towards those who don’t like their spam. They always say something along the lines of “I’m just trying to make a living, what’s wrong with that?”. They also always seem to insist that they folow all laws and don’t send to people who haven’t opted in. It’s scary just how much these people don’t understand what they’re doing and how much of a nuisance they’ve become. The thing that still surprises me the most, though, is that anyone actually responds to spam – allowing these people to make money. Clearly, it’s not too many people, but a few of them still do – and that’s what keeps the spam coming.
