Why Gmail, why?
Thursday, February 23, 2006

I really dont know why I suddenly started to get about 50 spams a day in this email account. I hardly use it, just set it aside to take the name. It is not even the one listed on these pages. On an interesting note: It doesnt seem like google does delete old spam after 30 days. Just like they dont really stop you from using more than 2.5 gigs.

    Yeah? I should just immerse myself in a 6 month porno bender. Tape a monitor to my face and just let the preggo nudity wash over me.

    I liked the idea of using GMail's web interface but I can't deal with that shit.

    I set my rules in M$ Outlook and I forget'm.

    Perhaps your e-mail got leaked out on a website somewhere, someone was browsing blogs and copy and pasting e-mails into their 'to send' lists. =(

    Oh. I just realized.

    I reply to all my spam using your e-mail address rather than mine.

    I don't wanna rad that shit.

    Sorry.

    Get out! That's insane! I've had a GMail account for a while now but always forget to check it. Uh oh, better go do it now.. *gulp*.

    I get about one spam a day. Maybe one every two days.

    But they keep coming, man. There's more of them, coming more frequently.

    I hate them, but there's nothing you can do.

    Yeah, I get them, too; anywhere from fifteen to twenty everyday.

    I am now over 1250... There will be a zero moment where the 30 day old emails are deleted, so if the rate has not changed, it will level off soon. But the rate might have increased recently.

    On my home account, I get about 200 spams a day.

    Of course, I've run a semi-popular website since 1999, and it wasn't until about 2003 that someone told me how to encode my e-mail address in ASCII.

    It doesn't help that many webhosts use the primary domain redirect as a "catch-all" for spam... :(

    Maybe you should see if you qualify for a Guiness Book of World Records? A lot of times gmail puts stuff in my SPAM folder that is not spam. My spam is on the increase, but I do publize my e'dress.

    Up to about 1650 now... But I think it has stopped, the rate probably isnt going up and it has been over 30 days since whatever incident that started this.

    Wow...and I thought I had it bad in my SPAMbox.oO

    A good thing it doesn't count as volume inyour inbox,or does it?

    It does, but never going to hurt my 2.5 gigs of gmail space there... its only about 10 megs :)
