I've gotten this same fucking message at least twice a week for the better part of a year now. Every time I block one sender (or one sender's entire domain), I get the message from a new source. I've even gotten multiple copies of the message on the same day. I can't block the message because Outlook Express's filters are shit and don't work. I'm gonna kill somebody if I keep getting this piece of shit spam.
