    I'm getting really sick of getting mail with offers of implants, enlargements, pills that make you grow, pills that make you loose weight, blue pills, pills that make my boobs bigger :eek:, pills of all kinds that are "doctor guaranteed", better pension plans, incredible investment opportunities and guaranteed incomes, invitations to one porn site after the other, ... all apparently American in origin.

    It's now more than half of my incoming mail, and growing, despite the spam filters the ISP has in place...

    Why the eitch-ee-double-ell am I on the spammers mailing lists anyway, I'm not even in the U.S.???

    I like the ones that offer you bigger breasteses... they are amusing some how.

    Actually, most of the stuff I get now is band-specific spam; I can't decide whether that's better or worse. I now get at least three offers a day to sign up for jazz festivals in Ohio and the Icelandic Songwriter of the Year.
