I’m Sir Spammed-a-lot
Dirty. Spamming. Bastards.
I cannot believe the amount of spam I'm getting of late. What does spam mean, anyway? I'm sure there's a good definition on Wikipedia, but I'd like to make it an acronym for Stupid Pointless Annoying Mail. That's certainly what it is.
These past few days I've been getting so much, as you can see from the screen grab above. The thing is, though, I have five mail accounts, and it's only the ones that have some sort of online presence that are getting spammed: my blog one, and my work one. Look at the subject lines: "Where did you get so small prick?" is my favourite. Thanks for that, Jennifer Robidoux.
Most of the spam mails to my work address are bouncebacks. It seems my company's domain name has been hijacked for the purposes of sending spam. Great. I don't even know how to stop that.
I know there are some techie experts out there, so if you have any cheap spam-reducing methods that are worth investigating, I'd be only too happy to hear. Thanks.
