My G-mail picks up more spam in the space of a week than you can shake a stick at. I just cleared it out day before yesterday, and I'll be darned if another 100 hadn't piled up by last evening. I thought some of the subject lines were mildly amusing:
My regular partner is boring so I had sex with someone...
Add up to 4 inches to yours penis
Love her the right way (from a Miss Bambi Luvera)
I wanted to dominate the other person
Supersize your hot rod
Do you want to enlarge your penis?
Awesome moans of a hottie
Hidden cams in a dressing room
Greek teenage billionaire topless pix
It was an initiation rite to a club or organization
Voluptuous beach honey alert
I wanted to make a conquest (from an Isabelle Zavala)
I wanted to breakup my relationship (from Miss Pearlie Staples)
Dance in the sheets all night long
Slovenian blonde on webcam (from a Mr. Milad Leidenfrost)
Some of the other gentlemen spamming me were Buster Rahn, Jerome Bacon, Jesus Lewis, Blaise Kuramoto, and Mr. Amadeus Honoré who wanted to sell me Cialis.
Who the hell sells these people our addys? Of course, I'm sure there must be quite a bit of phishing and trolling going on, but I have no doubt that lists containing our info are sold every day of the week. Somebody ought to put a huge, long-lasting curse on the purveyors of those lists. What I'd be interested in knowing is whether anybody ever actually BUYS anything as a result of being spammed.
Anyway... Want to ogle and stick your tongues out at the Words Gone Wild that TWISTED LINGUISTICS rounded up today?
