Two Minutes Hate

Email Spam Filters

I don't know why Spam email filters always seem to block emails from my bank, credit cards, and cable company (no matter how often I mark them as safe) but yet always allow the "Buy Discount Canadian Viagra/Cialis" emails through most of the time.

Seriously, this morning...17 messages in my Junk Email folder, 12 of which were fine...and 4 emails with the exact same subject about Viagra. I don't think I have ever had an email I wanted to read with Viagra in the subject. Yes, I know it is a popular medication but I imagine 99.99992% of emails with Viagra in the subject are Spam.

I suppose the spam filters are doing their job since they are now pretty good at blocking "Cum Gargling Sluts" and "Barnyard Babes"...but at least those were funny. The discount medication emails are SO boring.

Please IT people...learn how to block Viagra,V*I*A*G*R*A, vaigra, and every other variation in the subject and please leave my bank statements alone. How about you just block anything were the message starts out "Dear (email address)" instead of "Dear Michael"...that alone would be a good start.

End Hate
