Why is there so much spam?
Do people spend all day and night sending out these idiotic links that plug everything from porn to perfume? Do they get paid to do it? Do they realize they’re worse than telemarketers who call your house while you’re eating dinner? Worse then travel agencies that clog your fax machines with deals to Aruba? Worse than health insurance companies that mail you invitations to sign up and then decline you coverage?
Most of the spammers are irritating little losers who can’t type a sentence without misspelling every word. But some are crafty, cunning. There’s one – you know who you are – who tries to hide his/her posts in older blog entries of mine and writes messages that are supposed to be profound but are really just silly. And then there’s another who tries to get my attention by sounding like a total lunatic.
I wish somebody would create a Spam Police and throw all these people in Spam Jail. Seriously.
