From the Spam Bucket...

Just a random collection of spam what has been pissing me off...
  • My blog is nominated for "Top Brazilian Blog of 2012"? Really? I really thought I had 2011 in the bag and then nothing...
  • My PayPal account has been put on hiatus? And this was so important that you had to send me the news to an e-mail account unrelated to my PayPal account?
  • I don't care what the "Pimsleur Approach" might be. Especially when you send me 3-4 spam messages a day.
  • I want to know who's buying the "You have won the Ugandan Lotto" scams, because I need to talk with them - and by "talk" I mean beat repeatedly.
  • If I were trying to boost my website's traffic, I suspect one of the last places I'd look for tips would be spam mail that showed up in a free webmail service.
Again, I can't tell who I hate more - the spammers, or the idiots that fall for it that encourage them...

That is all.

The two most popular ones we've been getting lately are the "HGC Solutions" (I think they're diet pills?) and ones asking "Why did you post these nude photos on facebook?" (or a variant thereof) with malware attached to them.
