Okay, I know I post about spam too often. I have this love-hate relationship with it: Even though I hate getting it more than I can express in words, I continually find myself either amused by the content of it or impressed by the techniques that it uses. Case in point, I got two interesting pieces of spam today. One was programmed so that the delete button wouldn't work. I loaded the message in Outlook Express, and tried to press DEL to get rid of it, and a box informed me that such key wasn't valid. I had to drag it to Deleted Items. The other was a trio of xxx messages that took over my screen, 100%, to show me their message, which was very xxx-rated. I'm glad I didn't open that one at an office.
