Just one of those days....

It was an odd day in work...all sorts of personality type issues bubbling up, which doesn't happen very often - so when it does, it's really strange.

I've noticed something recently that is just so odd, and yet speaks volumes about 1. spammers, and 2. men. I get a ton of spam mail at my store account - I mean insane amounts of spam. And 98% of it is geared towards mens, um...virility, and drive and size. It's not even porn spam, it's all Viagra, Cialis (sp.) and size "enhancement".

First of all - do these people really think that there are people out there who say "hey, that's EXACTLY the thing I've been looking for! I'm going to open this email up and sign right up!" Seriously! If you're of delicate mind, be forewarned -- the following is going to be a sampling of the subjects of the emails I've just deleted:

"Don't get hard without it".
"buy now Viagra (Sildenafil) 100mg x 60 pills US $ 2.17 Per Pill"
"take her to love heaven"
"low prices on enlargement"
"she told me that you need more inches - we can help"
"enlargement and thickening - is it right for you?"

These are the "cleaner" ones I've received. It just makes me wonder what the fixation is regarding male performance and size! Is there nothing else to lure people into opening their 3k email?

The sad thing about this type of spam is that someone must be clicking on the e-mail and purchasing that crap. They wouldn't be wasting time on this type of advertising if this weren't the case. *shrugs*

A couple dozen of those emails come in to my work every day too. It just amazes me at how they can think anyone is really interested in all that crap. ANd how do they get all the email addresses anyway?
