I must be doing something wrong - my most frequent spam promises that a part I don't even have will be bigger. Much bigger.

not only bigger, but work better, work longer, work more often, and pick up radio signals from New Jersey. Jim

I haven't gotten any of the spam listed, but I do get the "Horny pill" e-mail on a daily basis at work.

Thanks for stopping by, Jim. I appreciate your comments and kind words!
--------------------------------------------
about a third of my spam comes in a language that looks like Russian -- I have never tried translating them but I'm sure they have to do with size, performance, or Russian babes!!!!!

"kind words" <== sure does not sound like me!!!!

Then there are the surrealist spammers: "This is NOT an e-mail message."

=========================
have not seen that, but I like it -- our health insurance likes too send "This is not a bill" statements in the mail that say how much you owe! Jim

Dang and I don't think I've received any of those!

We have a third party filter called Postini at work and when I check it after a few days I usually have anywhere from thirty to a couple of hundred spam email, bastages.

Hey where do I get my free Rolex?

Mik
==========================
Mik -- send your credit card number to our office in Singapore, to cover shipping and handling, and your free Rolex will be on it's way!!!!!

has anyone noticed a great increase in the number of people wearing Rolexes?? Mik-- how about the people on you bus??? they seem like a fake Rolex crowd :) Jim

I just got a spam e-mail titled, "Get Your Complimentary Subscription to Vibe Magazine." Which, by itself isn't too weird. But the e-mail was from Emma Smith. Isn't she a religious writer from the 1800s???

I'm getting spam from the Dead Poets Society now.

Phoenix -- really funny!!!!!!!!
