I hate SPAM! It has to stop!

I hate SPAM. Not the meat, well, I hate that too, but I am talking about the junk email that we all get. One of my domains was just moved to a non-filtered server and let me tell you. I get about 50 pieces of spam to each of my accounts. And I am not even on AOL. It is annoying. We need to find a way to stop this. Some of the stuff I get could be deemed illegal in the U.S.A. and for that matter, how do the spammers know I am not a 10 year old kid? This is just wrong. Oh and you have to love that they put that link at the bottom. You know, the one that says click here to be removed. HA! It should say, click here so we can verify your account is good and we will sell your address to 50 billion other spammers! So what can we do? We can not really ask the government to get involved. We don’t want them involved in the rest of the internet so why should they help with this part?

Further more, have you ever thought about what those spam mailings cost us? Yes, us. Like as you and me and all the other users of the internet. You see, each of those emails take bandwidth. And each bit of that bandwidth costs someone money. And that someone passes the cost on to someone else. And so on, and so on. Until it gets to us. Who do we pass it onto? No one. We have to write the check to pay it. It is out of control. Everything on the internet is flooded with it.

We need to figure out what to do about it. I would say the first step is to not use any services you hear about via spam mail. Only use services and companies that advertise in a respectable fashion. Let us here at SpazMonkey.com know what you think we should do about it or what you are already doing about it.
