The latest garbage I get are numerous offers from "AmazonCom", "Costco", "Walmart" for special gift cards that I just have to "activate" by clicking on a provided link. However, the scumbags send the messages from an email address that does not remotely reflect the genuine companies at all.
Probably from some lowlife somewhere in Russia or thereabouts.
I Have it from a good authority in Russia there's a South African guy that needs help to transfer a few boatloads of cash out and will pay handsomely for use of a bank account.
I'd do it myself but going away this weekend.
If you're interested, I can send him your email address...
sounds to me like if you help him you could easily pay for a whole shipping container viagra and keep a small village of Russian wives comfortable
Yes, unfortunately nothing seems to be perfect (well, maybe I am). I use popfile (free) for my personal mail and have to have a look in the junk folder. I am too lazy to always update it.
The corporate service we use sends a quarantine report to each user daily and they can request releases and white/black listing. Has its own warts but worth it, IMO.
Constant battle and will be that way as long as email is free.
Arguing with a woman is like reading the Software License Agreement. In the end, you ignore everything and click "I agree".

Well... Kent Sharkey! Praise be upon you.
My favorite so far is (I star the ones I like in my inbox):
Wikileaks founder Assange reveals his next target: Google Free information gets its latest teaser trailer.
If Kent Sharkey does visit upon this thread, tell me sir, do you write the serious line followed by the funny line? Or do you do all the serious lines first and then a day later add the funny line? I want to know....
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
No, that was @sean-ewington, the previous (and occasional backup) editor of the insider.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
