yes, Gentle Reader, the Eeeee-vil Forces that are out there are finding new and sneakier ways to get spam in my e/mail.
from, let's say, 123postcard.com. "a school-mate sent you a greeting!"
or "a greeting card from a relative!"
well, hell - how did you know they were either a school mate or a relative?
you don't. you sneaky schmuck. don't tease me.
i got caught only once in the last few weeks since they've been flooding my e/box. not because it had a name of someone i knew, but because i thought it was for real. AND it said americangreetings.com. thankfully, nothing happened to our system.
but some i've been getting have attachments...oh boy. THAT'S computer fun for your repair guy!
i asked the Husband if he had gotten any. he didn't know. and he doesn't know because he doesn't check his e/mail, no, it's because he has over a thousand unopened emails in his box.
yep. thousand. 1,000.
if i don't know, i don't open, he says. well, i don't open either, but hey, i at least mark it as spam and delete it!
once, a few months back, i thought i would be the Good Wife and clean up his in box.
good grief. watching a film on the mating habits of the common housefly would've been more stimulation.
i gave up after about 30 minutes. at that point i figured that if, at 47, he doesn't want to clean out his in box, then i don't need to be his "mommy" and do it for him.
'sides, i'm kinda hoping he gets a greeting from a class-mate. or a relative. either way, i'm good.
