Like any normal man¹, I get spam emails about viagra. But in the last fortnight or so, I've started getting spam about lawyers and addiction treatment. I've never searched for or interacted with either of those things. What's up with that? Are any of you getting lawyer spam or addiction treatment spam?

Also, who the f*ck would hire a lawyer who advertises via email spam?

of cause it is the people who bought the spam viagra and are now wanting to sue the producer, because they have an everlasting erection.

Hello old thread! :smile2:

Today I got one with the subject line "No more stressing over cat urine".

That's a niche market if ever there was one.

Is it an "unsubscribe from these emails" link?

Somebody's been a busy little bot in the Voices of the Forum section. He's churning out the sweet, sweet poetry of consumerism without stop.
I'm pretty sure that "new member" making an initial post about "Overnight Xanax" may have been a hint he wasn't really a Hellblazer fan.

Curiously enough, the account responsible is still showing as logged in to the forum.


(ETA)  I guess as it's a bot, it never has to log out.

Today there was one with the subject line "Wake up with a #morning stiffy & do her good".

The placement of the hashtag will have me scratching my head all day. :shrug:

from wikipedia: Mining: in underground mining, the hash sign is sometimes used as a shorthand for "seam" or "shaft". An example would be "4#", which would mean "four shaft" or "four seam" depending on the context.

if you are serious: it is to fuck with your spam-filter

Before idiots adopted the hashtag to use online, it was traditionally used to number something that's part of a series. Like a mineshaft, as you say, or even a a single issue of a comic...

Yes, not really knowing what exactly a "hashtag" is supposed to mean, other than something to do with a cell-phone (I do believe), I read that as "with a number morning stiffy". Now if the word "of" were inserted in there, it might make some sense, in an abbreviation sense. Although, not grammatically, as it would also need to be in the plural also. That's understandable from spam though, which is often not even intelligibly written.
