    Is it me or is it getting ridiculous?

    Out of the 50+ new messages in one of my accounts, the subject was something like, "cheaper prescription drugs", and in the message body had a picture of a couple kissing at the top. WTF does that have to do with prescription medicine??

    I guess the theory now is hammer with as much as you can, use any eye grabber trick you can, just get someone to buy something!

    Yeah the porn is out of control. I only get it on one certain account, too, so I think someone added my name to a list somewhere. My wife must think I'm surfing ther sites than CK5 at 1am, since my mailbox is flooded with porn spam, and she gets "win free passes to disneyworld" spam...

    Some states have anti-spam laws. I've read about cases where people took spammers to small claims court and won. I think you can get as much as $25 per spam sent.
