    I'm still married, damn it!

    I don't know what the deal is, I'm sure it's the same for most everybody, but I seem to get a shitload of SPAM anymore. And a large amount of it is "from" dating sites! Match.com, christianmingle.com, ourtime.com, anastasiadate.com, I got one targeted for black folks once, and my personal favourite, ashleymadison.com. That's not to mention the ads on the sides here urging me to hook up what look like prepubescent Asian gals. Driving me up a wall!
    And then there are the three fake emails today about my "Amazon.com order" - yeah, wonder what kind of pleasant surprise I'd gotten of I'd opened that file! So sick of it. Why do people have to do this shit? Is it really an effective marketing strategy? "Why yes, maybe I do need a Cami Shaper!"

    Sometimes I feel as if I've been compromised (NSA, are you listening?). Recently I've gotten phone calls asking for me by name asking me about my student loans (really?), my car loans and a dude claiming to be from Microsoft saying my computer had malware and he'd like to help me fix it (yeah, sure!). Maybe I should unplug and go read a book, but then I'd miss all you folks!

    Just had to vent - something like the internet that could be such a wonderful thing and people have to turn it into just another graffitied cyber ghetto.

    Have a cream soda, it's all gonna be over soon.


    But in all seriousness, we've gotten those Microsoft calls too. Total scam. Just assholes trying to prey on the computer illiterate who might actually believe what they're hearing.

    I got a piece of crap email and other day that pissed me off to no end. Here's exactly what it said:

    "There is an Amber alert in your area. Click here to find out who is missing. "

    Emails are not part of the Amber alert system according to amberalert.gov, which means that some bastard is out there using the concern over missing children to try and infect peoples fucking computers.

    I really wish someone would design some software that would not only protect your computer from idiots like these but also reach back to the of Point of origin and zap them in the balls.

    I got something really similar that was for "a sex offender has just moved into your neighborhood".

    Fucker, I hope they get dick rot and die a slow death from gangrene.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
