I am always saddened by this sad truth of the Internet Age: the only reason we receive this crap at all is that there are enough boneheads out there who still believe these come-ons, and actually respond to them.

If everybody, without exception, ignored them, they'd stop.

Thankfully we have great blogs like yours to counterbalance all the online sewage.

so carmi, would that make me a cyber Roto-rooter?

Carol said...

I would have to say I get about ten of these such scams a day ..I block them but they still keep on coming..but they are not as bad as the telephone calls we get here in Oz..similar sorts of scams and you know who they are because when you pick up the phone there is dead silence for about 15 seconds....

Oh yes to all you Americans Happy Thanksgiving..Don't celebrate it in Australia..

God Bless David,
