    So I'm selling some sunglasses for my wife on eBay, and I'm getting these utterly stupid emails from some eBay message bot from China. Here's the content:

    Don't they know I'm trying to SELL the glasses, not BUY new ones? How stupid is this? This has to be the most complete waste of internet bandwidth I've experienced in over 14 years of being online. Then again, maybe this rant trumps it. :eyebrow:

    I don't know that that's the biggest waste of internet bandwidth. It's a waste of bandwidth for sure, but some of the junk mail I get for pharmaceuticals, etc are at least as big of a waste.

    Sometimes my great aunt (late 80's at the time) would get gay porno emails. I hope those were just spam.
