Damn Spamn

I have a 10-Megabyte online email inbox. This is my pay-email, not some freebie hotmail account. In one day, I received 3 Megs of spam. My email program does a pretty good job automatically throwing it out, but that's only after I go online to check my mail. So if I were to go away for a long weekend and not check my email, in 3 days my mailbox could fill up and I'd start losing legitimate mail. There HAS to be a class-action lawsuit in the making here. Unlike tradition junk mail, spam is going to actively prevent me from receiving the mail I want.

There is one upside to this: I found my new favorite spam subject line. One of the messages was "The Slut-Bus is Waiting".
