The spam returns

Got my first spam message today. Well, the first since changing my email address, anyway. And unfortunately I couldn’t get BSM to work either – whether that was a problem with the email or the program I don’t know, but I noticed the program’s web site is no longer online. I just hope this isn’t the start of a deluge. And in case you’re wondering, it was one of those stupid pyramid schemes. It’s now been sent into email heaven… or should I say hell?
Actually, I remember ages ago reading an article about spam, saying that rather than blaming the spammers, we should blame ourselves. Why? Well most companies won’t resort to it unless there was some money to be made from it. Therefore, there must be some people out there who are actually buying from these idiots. Scary thought.
