Thread Name: BS: Spam
Subject: RE: BS: Spam
It is annoying isn't it Janie? I'm one of those rather-too-tidy folk, and I have to 'clean up' my emails daily. The Spam gets the heave-ho, then one has to empty the Trash and sometimes more rubbish has arrived before one can sign out. I often wonder if the senders of all this unwanted Spam get anything out of it. I suppose some people have a look and maybe respond, but nowadays people are very aware of scams and viruses.
One can opt out of unwanted telephone advertising and junk mail through the Post, but the e mail companies have to make their money somehow, and the advertising Spam pays them I expect.
As you say, grrrr!
