A Parting Shot?

Maybe the person who sent me their little nastygram wasn't as harmless as I thought.

I opened my email today, and suddenly I find I have signed up for all kinds of weird "services", things that mail you offers, mostly.  I didn't sign up for any of that junk.

I went through and set up a filter for each one, but it took me quite awhile and I am sure the next time I open my email there will be more of them. I just hope it doesn't go on forever, because I have no idea how to stop it.

  1. Probably some 30-something who lives in his Mom's basement and has lots of time on his hands because he won't find a job. Which explains why he lives in his Mom's basement. And harasses people. I would expect that kind of behavior from a 12 year old.

    2. Well, I suppose that the worst that could happen would be that I will have to close the email account associated with the blog and set up a new one. I should never have put the email address on the side bar.

  2. I hate when that kind of crap happens. I have some guy sending me stuff from different companies. It's the same address. I blocked him.

    1. I am setting up individual filters for each email but I am afraid that will not be a plausible long term solution.

  3. Well, consider the source. Probably a lib that didn't get his free stuff this month. These people need to get back under the rock they slithered out from. You might have to get a different email addy for you personal friends only.

    1. The trouble is, the only way I meet some people is by email, like the person who helped me out with a sleep aid. There must be some technical way to deal with this or there would not be any conservative blogs left at all.

  4. Hey Harry,

    I would have e-mailed that back and told him to go to a good "Urologist" because they got little blue pills for that problem of his.....

    1. Hey Harry,

      (captaincrunch)

      My grammar was all messed up I ment to say "I would have e-mailed that guy back, etc. etc.

      Also I don't need to relax and I cant keep calm. I'm Scotch Irish too, and We have been here since before the revolutionary war also. My ancestor made guns for the Revolutionary Army and his two sons fought against the Redcoat's (or so how family legend goes)

    2. I don't have any way of knowing if the pompous email writer did this but I have never been much of a believer in coincidence.

    1. I wonder why people would go to so much trouble to annoy someone. They must have precious little in their lives to focus on.

    1. I can always set up a different email account I guess.

  7. I set up a filter for each email but I can't do that indefinitely. it's too time consuming. I really didn't need this but I'm not inclined to capitulate and just say"the devil with it."
