A Spammer in the Works

It's been a long time since my last post. I was too busy clearing spam from my mailbox. 

Contrary to what some people think, email is not redundant. It's become THE means for spam to self-actualize and realize its full pulse-quickening, temper-raising and lifespan-lowering potential. 

If you ever feel guilty about feeling good, get spam. It'll have you feeling terrible in no time at all.

Yeah, 'guilty about feeling good' is nonsense but it sounded like something out of a junk mail headline so I had no qualms about saying it. See,that's just the sort of bad influence these spammers- who have zilch qualms about anything  - have on you. 

Spam is like that thingummy that has several heads and each time you chop one, two others appear in its place. Hydra is what it's called I think although do NOT google unless you want to be spammed.

Ever tried unsubscribing ? They make you select from various options of reasons to make absolutely sure that you do want to unsubscribe and didn't click Unsubscribe because,like, you do not want to unsubscribe. Hmm, yeah, I suppose wanting not to receive unsolicited mail is an exceptionally rare thing. Among the options is "I no longer want to receive these mails" which is funny considering you can't remember asking to receive them in the first place.

I know that's quite a lot about spamming. I bet you've never thought about spammers before. And that is mutual. Spammers don't think about you either. All they think about is email ids. Emotions and the rest of it  can go to hell (or, better still, to a mailbox). The way other people marry for love or money, spammers probably marry for email ids.

Now the author braces himself for a spate of matrimony-related spam to plague his life.
