Yahoo mail has spam filters too that you can make yourself but if you're working with the free version , after a certain amount of filters , they won't let you make any more. Which is very stupid and annoying if you get alot of spam mail.

I don't see why you needed to announce it either Monkey!

If you do meet a guy and he tells you he's gay, just remember that he might not even neccesarily fancy you at all. Just like you don't fancy every girl in existence. And if he does fancy you, reject him and feel flattered that someone found you pretty!

Maybe you do know some gay folk, and they're worried you will act strange and foreign around them.   :-*

(HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!)

I am admittedly somewhat nervous around homosexuals because I don't actually know any...

I guarantee that you do.

I don't know any out-of-the-closet ...uh... what is the right word to call them? I mean...I don't want to offend people here...gays? Is it okay to say gays? I don't know any out-of-the-closet gays in real life. Let's put it that way.

I think they prefer "those people."  Don't forget the italics.

Seriously.  They're just people.  They're gay.  Call them gay.  If you think of the word "gay" as an inherently bad word, then you're part of the reason that none of your gay aquaintances are risking coming out of the closet.

You don't need to feel awkward around gay people.  Gay is not contagious, and even if it was, the only bad thing about being gay is being treated as if you're not a person by your peers and by your government.

I just reread the thread and can't understand why homosexuality was even brought up.  Sex spam isn't sent to women on the off chance that they might be lesbians... It's sent to everyone because email is free and for every million you send, one idiot will pay you off.  I can't understand why you came out of left field just to announce that you dig chicks...  It suggests sexual confusion more than anything else.

He inspires sexual confusion in a lot of us.

His comment about always having fancied only chicks made me feel like it was okay to say that I feel the same way. I just tend to talk too much and draw things out into things they aren't.

The topic of this thread is how ridiculous these people who send out spam truly are. Seeing as I've never done it myself, do you think that these people are actually paid, or do they just do it for the sheer hell of it? I mean...of course large corporations can't legitimately have a Spam division, but perhaps they have a few other things like $50 rolls of toilet paper or some such...if you catch my drift.

Hmm, I usually answer these.

You know, I got the exact same post than you, I answered it, and I ordered some suspicious viagra. The woman came to me AND IT WAS THE BEST GOD DAMN SEX I'VE EVER HAD!

It's been 5 months and I'm still having an erection, so I don't have to buy more of that cool stuff, even though I could with all the money I got from that weird Nigerian guy...

Gheez, Natasha, when will I see you again :P

I forsee this discussion rapidly progressing to a talk about homosexuality and being locked...

I don't necessarily see why it would be locked for talking about homosexuality. Certainly it's not the topic...or at least it wasn't...though I think if the mods think things are getting out of hand they can say "keep it on-topic" before it becomes necessary to lock the thread...

Those free* iPod sites are funny because you end up paying more for the sponsor "deals" than you would to go buy an iPod itself.
