i am getting a hell of a lot.there is a big russian market here so i was just wondering if it is local if spammers are that discerning ( i doubt it. } Also fake rolex watches are flavour of the month, which is funny as so many are made here to start with and sell for a pittance.Just a heavy load of them at the moment and not sure how i can filter them in the russian alphabet/ Oh well

I don't think spam cares who it hits mate...but I may be wrong. Good luck with that Russian phrasebook mate lol.

Dear All
My thanks to all those who have sent me emails this past year........

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl
(Penny Brown); who is about to die in the hospital for the
1,387,258th time.

I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive
the R15, 000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for
participating in their special e-mail program....

Or from the senior bank clerk in Nigeria who wants me to split $7
million with me for pretending to be a long lost relative of a customer who died intestate.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking
out for me, and St. Theresa's novena has granted my every wish.

I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a
water buffalo on a hot day.

I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I
forward e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five
minutes.

Because of your concern I no longer drink Coca-Cola because it can
remove toilet stains.

I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a
number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica , Uganda ,
Singapore and Uzbekistan .


If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next
70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00pm
this afternoon and the fleas from 12 camels will infest your back,
causing you to grow a hairy hump.

I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my
next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's
beautician's relative once removed.

By the way....a South American scientist after a lengthy study has
discovered that people with low IQ who have infrequent sexual activity
always read their e-mails with their hand on the mouse.

Don't bother taking it off now, it's too late! :)

Hi all

Know this is an old thread but do you guys get three or four e-mails a day asking you if you'd like to 'off-shore' design and dev work? It is starting to boil my brain to be honest. Got one from Serbia today!

So, is it just us or are we not alone??

The Interweb still tells me my size is inadequate and that every pharmacy in Canada can help me with it.
