    i turned on the webtv just now and i had 63 messages. isn't there some
    kind of flood control?

    has anyone else had this problem? i didn't open them i just deleted them. they seem to be advertisements.

    ugh. You have gotten yourself on a list with somebody, and they have sold your email addy it looks like. Your email service should have some options that will eliminate spam to some degree. Or you can take the long way and respond to them with the title "remove" in the subject line in your response.

    Its beyond me man. Who the fuck is going to ever visit some "get rich quick" link or a "save $50,000 on your home loan" links. Its just wishful thinking on their parts - they'd be better off using their time for something more productive. All spam does is piss the reciever off - the last thing you want to do is visit their site!

    And I've also heard that replying to any spam is a bad idea - 'cause then they know that there is somebody there reading it, and consiquently they just send more. I've had to change email addresses before to get away from the problem - I hope you don't need to do the same.
