SPAM – SPAM – SPAM Thoughts

22 Comments

There’s been an abundance of SPAM sneaking around my computer.

Yes, they’re little snake-like creatures we can’t see. They create havoc of every imaginable kind. I have no clue on how they do it. I have a pretty good idea that no one else does, either. If they do know they’re keeping it quite hush-hush. 

It’s fascinating the way the computer repairman looks you straight in the eye and says, “These things just happen”. 

Really? 

I felt like a cartoon character with a big question mark above my head. Aren’t Firewalls and web protection supposed to prevent these little villains? 

My computer froze on my homepage with what seemed like quite an official letter from the FBI. The letter read that I was in violation of paying my fines to them. If I didn’t submit $500.00 dollars to them I would be taken to federal prison. There was a drop down with the amount on it and directions on how to get this money to them. 

Well, my first thoughts were whether or not I had sent in the tax money that I owed good old Uncle Sam. As all good Americans, I had instructed our accountant to submit our business and home taxes and to pay the owed fees. 

After checking on all that, my second thought was that I could use a nice vacation with three hot meals, use of an extensive library, exercise room plus a television lounge room. Then, I got angry and thought that whoever was doing this was a creepy low life individual that has nothing to do except create chaos in my business and home life.

There were other SPAM messages from time to time like: 

  1. Dobrowolskiqkn, obviously, not a real name thinks that I should be working out with this new method of exercise called TRX. A bit excessive for someone my age.
  1. And it’s evident that, horny hot, has been peeking into my bedroom because he –she – it – seems to think they know what I might need to do to have a better sex life.
  1. Seemingly, Anita902, thinks that I must have severe back pain and a bit of a nervous condition as she has recommended I take some Ultram and Vicoden. Do they not know these prescriptions are addictive?
  1. Gaming Site- to play video games. I have no desire to play games. 
  1. Lottery Site – so as to gamble. My hard earned money taken away with foolishness. I’ll pass. 
  1. Hacker Site – to avoid computer hacking. HUH?
  1. Transsexual – Stripper XXX Site –   this left me speechless and with eyes that never wanted to see again. There was body parts showing that weren’t meant to be seen in public.  

I wish I could say that these SPAMS are funny but after a few 100 times of deleting them from my SPAM box it gets a bit old. In addition, when it takes over my computer and prevents me from running my business, I feel frustrated. 

I believe technology is important but something has to be done to prevent this from happening. 

Who do you think is doing this?

Who do you think should be preventing this?

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

  2. It’s al become really unpleasant. Facebook for instance began as a lovely way of keeping in touch with distant friend and family, now its advert after grotty advert in our face all the time.

    • It seems the more we progress with technology the more problems seem to arise.
      Do wish these guys would put these talents to better use. I suppose we have to live with
      these issues if we want to be connected with family and friends.
      No one call anymore … it’s going the way of writing letters. SAD …

  3. Technology / computers are like the opening line to A Tale Of Two Cities ” It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
    I think the first step to controlling SPAM is each platform doing something about it.

    • Ah yes, Resa. Something needs to be done about the SPAM. Unfortunately, I think it’s difficult to coral.
      I wish these talented people would make better use of their skills. We are slaves to our technology – like it or not.
      No one calls – everyone texts. Calling will eventually become the same as snail mail – obsolete.
      Thank you for expressing your frustrtaion too. It was a carthartic write for me.

      • Snail mail … they want to stop mail delivery in Canada!!! Well, why not? They’ve stopped teaching cursive writing in schools! xx

        • LOL You made me laugh with this one, Resa. I remember when they said they were going to stop cursive writing.
          I was shocked. Caligraphhy was something I took up becasue of its lyrical beauty of letters. Now, mail too.
          Oh my, I don’t want to sound like my parents but things are changing and not-so-much for the better.

  4. Unfortunately, our emails are easy to obtain from WordPress and being this is a www a lot of spammers are going to get ahold of our emails and wreck havoc on us. It is so frustrating!

  5. Oh those damn cyber demons! On the other hand, I enjoy reading the subject lines on my spam email. I wrote several posts about all the offers I received from numerous ladies!

    • Ahh yes, the offers from men, as well. They don’t seem very complimentary when the accompanying photo has triple X images. I’ll pass on those invites.
      Sadly 😔 it’s the technical world we’ve created for ourselves. But, this was cathartic. Thanks, aFrank.

  6. I had one of those messages not too long ago that sounded like Ransomware. If I recall, my husband told me to reboot my laptop and that took care of it. I get spam on WordPress sometimes (or is that what you’re talking about mostly?), but that’s pretty much it. I go to my spam folder on my email sites every so often and delete all spam and put all the actual mail sent there into my box. Frustrating, that’s for sure!!

  7. Yeah! It’s quite offensive, isn’t it? Things we don’t want to know, don’t need to know, downright lies and on and on … Good work this and you are certainly speaking for 99% of us … the 99% who aren’t making everyone elses lives messy.

    • Thank you, Jamie. I found writing this post to be quite cathartic. We need technology. We’ve boxed ourselves in with it.
      I can’t remember a real phone call. Texting is overpowering phone calls the same way that e mails is killing snail mail.
      Ahhhh … progress. : – O
