My other blog [blogspot.com]
My wife and I keep having these 'discussions' about my spam (sent to my public email address that I've had since around '95). She sees it piling up in my junk mail folder and has to press me about it about once a week now. It's really getting annoying.
Her: "Why do you get so much porn email? You wouldn't get that kind of mail if you hadn't been to those kinds of site."
Me: "Yeah, right. You don't do anything to get spam. It's unsolicited email for Pete's Sake."
Her: "But I don't get that kind of email."
Me: "You use Yahoo and I'm not familiar with their spam filters so it's possible that they are blocking it for you."
We had this 'discussion' a few days ago and it occurred to me to take a different approach so I called her.
Me: "You remember the email 'discussion' we had? Well, I just thought of something that you probably haven't taken into account. You don't have your email address plastered all over the 'net like I do. Have you ever Googled for my email address?"
Her: "Uh, no. Why?"
Me: "Try it sometime. I just did and got 136 hits. Spammers scour the internet looking for email addresses. They find mine and not yours so I get the spam and you don't."
I'll have to wait and see if she pesters me about it again.
