    Hotmail users might know about this all too well...

    Don't you just really hate Junk mail? I mean, you start up being able to block 250 e-mails. So you do, and everything is fine, BUT THEN YOU GET A LOT MORE and most of your inbox is taken up by e-mails asking you if you want to consolidate your non-existant debts etc...

    So what do you do when you recieve these pointless pieces of trash? Well, here's one thing that you shouldn't do:

    Jon, being the intelligent and slightly bored person at that time, decided to write a reply...

    Dear ----land David.

    I would just love to be the beneficiary in your scam. Did I say scam? I meant inheritence.

    Here are my bank details!

    Bank: ----wide Building Society!
    Account number: UP-YOURS-F--KWIT.
    Sort Code: WA-NK-ER.

    Thank you for your time to choose me! oh, and the other 1'000'000 people you've probably sent this to!

    With unkind Regards,
    Jon.



    So then? Anybody else replied to spam mail or just deleted it? :p

    I reply to spam a lot, and it stops. I usually make it sound professional, and then swear my ass off at the end calling them a whole bunch of names :).

    It's fun insulting spammers and such :lol:.

    I usually ignore spam. I don't get a lot of it, like maybe 5 spams a day, so it doesn't really matter. My friend did tell me how he got his AOL account hacked into and they sent porn spams to a lot of people. His account was taken away, of course, and he had like a million replies, one from a priest saying "God have mercy on your soul" and crap like that....

    and then he found 100 dollars ;)

    One of those guys from the African scam e-mailed me and I replied with this:


    I am very interested in helping your family. My name is Harold Potter. My friends call me Harry. I will be in the school of wizardry for 4 days so I will get in touch with you later on.

    Your future friend,
    Harry Potter

    I don't often get spam, because I have the junk mail filter on. I don't reply to any of it, because when you reply all you're really doing is confirming that there IS a user at the other end of this address, and the last time I did respond (somebody trying to sell me CHILD PORNOGRAPHY :angry: ) I got like 50 more of them. If I don't reply and just block (not just the email adress -- but everything ending in @insertspamdomainhere.com) them, they usually go away for me.

    200 a day is crazy. I only get about 20 a day, and I just delete them all. You've got to admit, they're kind of funny. There was a time when I got a bunch that was titled "Blah blah blah, clean your septic tanks".

    I only get, oh, about 50-100 each week. I don't really use Hotmail a lot....only Yahoo Mail. I don't really do anything, I just delete it. I should try to reply to them.....I wonder what would happen.

    My friend Melissa got an e-mail about enhancing her.. male genital. Anyway, she was like, "I'M GOING TO REPLY!" so she did and she showed me and it was like:

    "I DO NOT HAVE A PENIX THANKS"

    I laughed so hard and now we use PENIX instead of male genital.



    It was funny to me :(

    Don't give out your e-mail and people won't sign you up for crap like that.

    (So yeah, I'm also saying that the e-mail I was using [which is in my profile] isn't that one that I use.)
