notes from the boiler room

  1. No clue. I’ve streamlined my life to the point that I’m not sure I can even DEFINE spam. I go to about 5 or 6 blogs on a daily basis, drop by CNN and FoxNews, read e-mail, and watch re-runs of Bones, NCIS, and the unending discussion of WWII on various channels from perspectives other than the US view.

    Hence, I never see much spam, and I ignore all commercials (unless they’re really cute and somebody recommended ‘em) as well as political speechifying.

    But as for those who create problems (viruses & worms) for the purpose of profiting from solving them (anti-virus software) or simply annoying people (shitting in a bag, setting it afire on a doorstep, and ringing the doorbell), I prescribe castration by monkey wrench, gender notwithstanding.

    Ditto for any member of the US legislature who has been in D.C. for more than 10 years and political figures who refuse to disclose their medical, business, eligibility, and academic records.

  2. Firstly – Thank you, Apo, for all the hosing, shoveling and mucking.

  3. I prescribe castration by monkey wrench, gender notwithstanding.

    First time through, I read that as “castration by monkey wrench, grinder notwithstanding” and thought “hell, why not both?”

  4. Tarps are also big here along the Gu’f Coast during ‘cane season, sometimes referred to as “Blue Roof Season.”

    Birdbaths . . . well, maybe a .07 or so on the GAF meter.

  6. apo,
    Keep it short. *snick* Castration by monkey.

    You got a URL for that outfit?
    Oh, wait, never mind. I already have a birdbath and a couple’a tarps.
    Missy’s flamingos are a bit faded, though. You get anything about flamingo paint?

    My spam filter works pretty darn well.
    The only trash mail I get is from politicians and organizations I’ve already donated to.

  7. Hey, there’s good money in tarps! Why just a couple of years ago, the gummint paid $700 billion for a TARP.

    Lord only knows what they’d pay for a birdbath…

  12. Before word verification I got a lot of pet supply spam because I wrote about my blue heeler jack a lot.
    Usually: “that was great. I love dogs too. Go to”
    I still see on my sitemeter several times a day hits from googlebot in mountain view, ca. They hit random posts trolling for keywords… ie pets, money, sex &ct, then they choose the appropriate spam such as pet stuff, mortgage lenders, penis enlagement.
    Luckily for me wv seems to keep them at bay for the most part.

  15. Dude.

    You’ll go blind reading that crap. Trust me.

  16. Tarps will be eminently useful when it comes time to “shoot, shovel, and shut up.”

  17. I’m on Gmail and get very little spam. I had an account on an independent ISP and got close to a dozen a day.

    My favorites were the ones who tried to convince me that Life Would Be Beautiful if only I got one of their knock-off Rolex imitations, and the one from the niece of the banker in Nigeria who’d cut me in on a big slice of the account he’s trying to smuggle out of the country.
