Spam kills....

    :idea: Get a gmail account and have it "check" your other email for you if you have one (school or whatnot). It captures about 98% of the spam that comes to my email account, and very, very rarely (if ever) marks something as spam that isn't.

    :)

    You guys will not last the cycle if you keep this up. You need to calm down. Make a vow...I will check my email three times per day...once when I wake up, once at noon, and one time around dinner time. Otherwise, you will definitely lose it!! wait until you finish your interviews and you are waiting for the mail! Last cycle, my mailman started coming at 6 in the evening just in time for acceptances to be mailed out

    Yeah, I've gotten variations on that one. All spam annoys me. On some level, though, I kind of like those royal pleas for help, because it helps me to learn my African geography. For instance, I had no idea that:

    1. Namibia was even a country until I received an e-mail from one of their "Princes" and Angelina Jolie had a kid there.

    2. Guinea-Bissau existed let alone that it was nowhere near New Guinea.


    War and spam.... it's how Americans learn geography. :thumbup:

    Dude, I'm telling you my mail.med.someuniversity.edu account gets more v1agra and pEn!s enlargement spam than my college account ever did. I'm not sure if it's because medical schools are specifically targeted or because some geezer is looking up peen pills on a work computer.

    What you need is Viagragain. The weight loss pill for Bald Impotent Men.

    I foresee problems with that one.


    "Consult your physician if you notice hair growth in an odd place, or experience an erection lasting for longer than four hours. This maybe indicative of a severe medical problem. Viagragain is not for everyone. Pregnant women or women who may become pregnant should not handle Viagragain because it may cause certain birth defects. Talk to your physician today and see if Viagragain is right for you."

    Yes, And set up Gmail Notifier. Everytime my Yahoo! account goes off it could just be because ANN TAYLOR is having a sale or something. I feel you, Sev. :)
