I keep hearing that Google, Yahoo, and other such web entities are intuitive - like the way Facebook knows to put jewelry and bead ads on my Facebook page.
That's why I am continually amazed at the e-mail spam I get - the spamming community is convinced I am a guy, I think - I get hundreds of e-mails for penis enlargement, Viagra (and other "performance enhancement" drugs), etc, a day. I periodically close e-mail accounts and open new ones, but am never spam-free for long.
Wish I could figure out who keeps selling my e-mail addresses; it's not like I'm visiting porn sites.
But anyhoo - I had to laugh at the latest one to hit my inbox:
It's from "Secret Wife Affairs", and the subject line? "Why wait? Have an affair with a cheating wife today."
Sorry - WHY WAIT HAVE AN AFFAIR WITH A CHEATING WIFE TODAY
It just makes me wonder:
- Did all the cheating wives get together and form their own online business?
- Why do these spammers think I am the target demographic for this?
- Why are they yelling?
- Is this type of spamming lucrative?
- Who would click on this e-mail?
But - if you feel left out because you aren't getting fantastic offers like this, just drop me a comment with your e-mail address, and I'll be happy to forward this one directly to you*! No charge!
*Not really. Find your own spam.
