Many, many thanks to my unnamed Friends and unnamed Neighbors and unnamed Coworkers who are sending me so, so many e-cards from unknown e-mail accounts! It’s so very nice to know you are thinking of me and that you love me.
Yet I fear your love is impure. I suspect, lowyam @ bullshitaddy . com, that if I actually clicked on the link you invite me to, that I would view something not worth my time, and that you might perhaps do something nasty to my computer. So alas, I must continue to use my metaphorical tongs to transfer your loving message from my inbox to my trash.
Dopers, if I was such a fool as to click the link, what’s the payoff or punishment? Would I just see yet anothe invitation to purchase Viagra or extend the penis they assume I have? Or would I find I had uploaded malware/spyware of some kind? What, exactly, are these e-cards supposed to accomplish? And incidentally, why doesn’t my spam filter pick them up?
