The second most annoying spam I received, had the following message body:
Somebody sent me a word “pingvin”? Pingvin? What am I supposed to do with this? Reply with a word “polar bear”? Even pill and stock spam isn’t this annoying since at least then I know they are trying to get money from me. But, somebody sending me word “pingvin” – argh! :) What on Earth do you want me to do with this?
The other annoying spam had MY address in the “from” part, sent to MY address. Not just once, but several times. The message had the following content:
We can email your message to 7,500,000 people. [link to the website]
I bet you can, and I’m one of them!
Entrepreneurial hint: The guy who figures out how to stop spam will be a rich guy. Patent the algorithm or something that stops spam.
