For two years I have kept my new cable e-mail address totally spam-free (not one in two years, incredible, isn't it?). I did this by giving my address with utmost caution to only friends and known, trustworthy contacts and when buying on-line etc., I have a disposable inbox with MyRealBox.com, a free service for mail offered by Novell, where the cr@p piles up and I do a mass delete about once a week and sometimes abandon it completely and create a new one.
So, my prime address was free from spam - until now, that is. Yesterday and today came the ludicrous 419'ers, the Lads from Lagos with their heart-rending requests for help by a relative of some disposed despot in getting many millions of US dollars out of some war-torn African country - ya'll have had the pitch.
Now, these mails are laughable in their expectations of gullibility of the recipient and the obvious errors made. The almost deliberate mistake in the last one today was to include a long list of other possible punters in the cc: distribution list - my friends in the Trapper bulletin board - IT WAS YOU !!! This wanker had obtained a list of all those who had contributed lately to these debates and I was one by letting my golden rule lapse just here by including my prime e-mail address in my postings. Never again.
You have been warned.
