Pet peeve of the day...

Computer hackers who can't spell. These idiots invade our computer and steal our personal information so they must have some brains to figure out how to do it. The question is: Why can't they spell? Tough luck...their loss is our gain.

I've decided it's fairly easy to decipher which message in my e-mail account are real. Simply look at the title.

These are just a few of the titles I've received:

"TRANSFER OF FUNDS SUCCESSFULL"

"YOUR WACOVIA CHECKING ACCOUNT"

"EMPRES YOUR WOMAN WITH YOUR MANLYNESS" (UMMM...HELLO?) :o

"OPEN IMEDIATLY"

AND....

"YOU MAY BE A WEINNER" :blink:

Message to hackers, spammers, and phishers...stay the heck out of my computer!

YOU'LL NEVER IMEDIATLY OR SUCCESSFULY EMPRES WACOVIA WITH THE MANLYNESS OF YOUR WEINNER! :rolleyes:

I totally agree!!! But I think most of the e-mails are comming from third world countries. I have several from Kenya. AND I NEVER OPEN THEM UP.

Don't you wonder how they got you e-mail in the first place. It's driving me crazy wondering.

At work we have a spam folder, and the only emails I only get are all R-rated....one of the best is make your tool as big as a tower.

All of them directed towards men....but still....

I get a lot of R-rated e-mails too. Just like you said, all of them are for men...I was wondering if I ever visited a site with a spyware cookie that mistook me for a man.

I've also had an increase in the number of e-mails that are just random symbols in the title. Like: ^*&^#! Anyone else? What is that about? :rolleyes:

:lol:

I get these too and thankfully most of them are filtered out by my spam folder. Unfortunately I have to go through my spam folder often because it seems some of my legit emials land in there at times, and every once in a while one of the spam emails makes it into my inbox.

I did notice anytime I register at different websites I get an influx of the spam emails, so I wonder if they are selling email addresses? :huh:

Little bit of a tech side here ...

They HAVE to misspell some words to get through spam filters. If i sent an e-mail with the correct words... they would be filtered out as spam because that is what most spam filters do.. where empress is not a common word and is not usual to use in a solitiation.

Also, Often times if you open an e-mail and unsubscribe they just use it to verify this is a good e-mail that you will read, and sell it. Only use the "unsubscribe" button if it is a legitmate company or site, but better yet go to the site it's from first.. never click a link in a e-mail!

Stay safe out there...!

Well, it's not just emails. Yahoo is the worst messenger for letting these spammers in. I never have this problem in MSN or AOL. I get these guys all the time IMing me in yahoo, they think I am so beautiful, they are looking for a woman just like me, they are recently divorced, always have 1 son, who usually is a teenager, and 9 times out of 10, they are working out of the country, but are from some state in the USA. Which by the way, usually is the first clue, we never say we live in NY, USA. Sometimes, depending on my frame of mind, I will mess with them. One guy, was living in northern Arizona and told me he was working off an oil rig in the ocean, north of there! Ok buddy, let me sell you some ocean front property!!!!! :P The truly amazing thing are the people who fall for these scams, it's really sad.

So many here have been falling for this car scam. They find an ad in the newspaper for a car for sale. They agree to meet the person somewhere, no one wants to meet anyone at their homes anymore, so they go to a mutual place. The honest person gets there, the dishonest person steals their money and disappears! It's a sad world.

Update on this annoying matter!

Due to the overwhelming amount of spam coming into the work accounts they put a new spam quarentine into effect. So now all the X-rated mail will be deleted. At least they are attempting to curve it. Things had been quiet for a few months and all of a sudden the dirty emails started again.

Just an obsevation....today it snowed 6-8 inches....so we're out there, the only ones, shoveling around our car. The property is the responsibility of the landlord but I can't seem to giggle a little when I think of the young he-men in my apt. complex whom I see going to the gym with their little bags and when it snows I never, ever see them out there shoveling the snow...even to do it just for the exercise. So here I am a mere woman shoveling the sidewalk just because I want to do it for the exercise. Just a giggle for me on a snowy day.

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
