Dunno about the rest of the world, but I'm getting a long term average of just over 150 UCE every day, peaking mid week at roughly 250. Dot gov is doing zero about it, and there is good reason why they aren't and shouldn't with the real adverts. (Scams and phishing are a different story, of course.) A lot of it is just like the mailbox grocery flyers, legitimate advertising however unwanted clutter. The main difference to me is that I can throw the whole flyer away at once, no need to heave each of the sale items separately one at a time as has to be done with the inbox junk. Yeah, it aint much effort, but takes time. "Delete" is worn off the key on my keyboard, even dimmer than the "E". My ISP has a pretty decent junk mail filter. I have it set to the "most aggressive" filtering position, and it hasn't captured but one or two messages it should have let thru over the last two years. Stops about 98% of junk from getting thru. But these turds are getting craftier and craftier, and the junk catcher on my machine letting more and more into the inbox rather than shunting it off to trash. If I could, I would cheerfully disembowel every get rich quick operator that sells ads to the poor suckers to distribute. Then, those that fall for those schemes should be made to spend a year re-typing the ads before deleting them. A few thousand a day from their one and only inbox would get their attention and prevent recidivism. So who do YOU hate the most for spam? For me, there is a special place in hell for John Cummuta and those that use Matt Saunders' name. Others, then, in no particular order: Diploma and certificate mills, most recently DeVry. I've got all I need. Earned. Anything with ACAI (or other miracle cures) in it. Cheap drugs. Weight loss. (My BMI is 21.) Pimsleur. I have two languages already and a smattering of others. Fast grass and it's cohorts. I have weeds that grow quite fast enough. All kinds of insurance. I've got it covered. Make money with e-Bay kits. Training for medical transcriptionist or whatever they are calling it. Credit info you can pay them to get for you when you can get it for free. And the very latest up to datest, new kitchen cabinets. What's yours?
