Before I start, I know this is going to be un-popular, but...
why does this (SPAM) get you all rilled up? Do you get that annoyed when it
comes through the post box at home? No, me neither - actually I like reading
junk in the jacks - And a godsend if you run out of bogroll :( - but email
spam?? Use the delete button! If you guys really wan't to do something
productive, call your local authority and get them to ban TAXI's and BUS's
from the bicycle lane! - and people go on about the traffic in Dublin? get a
bike, and you can just laugh at all the drivers pulling their hair out. Do
like me, take a radio walkman, and listen to the traffic reports, and laugh
and laugh and laugh. If we had a traffic channel like in France, thats all I
would listen to - except the last word of course - We love you Eamo!
And as a bonus, girls will be more attracted to you with your toned body and
tight ass. :))) Same goes for the ILUG girls.
But its the traffic reports that its really all about!
Spam is really not worth the effort. Coz I;m sure spam does not wreck
people's heads as much as Dublin traffic.
This could be worrying for isps. I wonder does this give a right to
companies to send UCE through their ISP's servers, notwithstanding any AUPs
and Tos's of the ISP of the company?
