a few weeks ago, i started getting spammed. my relatively unknown email address found its way out into a spambot computer. my email address was always relatively safe because those spambot computers were unable to generate it because i threw in an extra initial.

starting in november or so, someone in the district with whom i share a last name started setting up utilities, using my email address as contact info. i politely informed each of those companies that mine was not in fact sue's email address and to please contact her another way. oddly, you'd think those companies would know that because i had accounts of my own set up with them. unfortunately, with the same last name, perhaps they thought we were kin or married or something else somewhat logical. in any event, i thought this problem was solved. i deleted all of those emails when they finally ceased. now with a furious pace, i'm getting 20-30 spams a day because she's setting up homebased businesses, entering survey sites to win free stuff, sell viagra, god knows what else!

if only i still had those emails with her address so i could snail mail bomb her back. is that vindictive? eye for an eye, the bible sayeth...
