Crawl out of bed, put on a pot of coffee, check my email and what do I see? My spamblocker summary report. That’s not terribly unusual. I get a couple of spam emails a day. Usually I catch them before the report is generated and delete them from my suspect email folder. Today, let me see… One, two, three… many. I stopped counting after 100. I estimate over 300 spam emails were sent to me overnight, mostly from blocked domains. More than a few were from an address I blocked, since it’s from a defunct business I was with, and a couple were from BeelzeBob, whom I blocked (and told him I was blocking him) because he refused to take me off of his mass mailing list and I was tired of his Teabagger and racist shit. I don’t know whether to be annoyed that someone(s) tried to send hundreds spam mails, or amused that they went to all that work and their attempts were all deleted before I even saw them. (The summary report says who was blocked, the subject, the date, and why the mail was blocked. I don’t actually receive the mails.) All they did was provide fodder for a groggy Sunday morning thread on a message board.
I just wish my spamblocker had an auto-infect feature that bounces the spam back to the senders and infects their computer with a nasty virus.
