Remember When Email Was Fun?
from the not-any-more... dept
Another spam post that goes into the usual areas discussing the problem, but has one statement that really clicked with me: email used to be fun. You used to enjoy sitting down at your email and seeing who had written you an email. Now you fear the latest offers for viagra or porn. Even in cases where you have a pretty good filter set up, you wonder how long it will last. A good friend of mine just left for a week and a half vacation, where he won’t have access to the internet. He knows that his yahoo email box is going to fill up with spam within a day of his being gone, but there’s nothing he can do about it. Spammers have taken all the fun out of email and turned it into a chore. How nice.
