Nine Moons Logo Does It Again! Which Emails Bug You the Most?

Don - January 30, 2007

Great Logo Rusty. It is just so right on – don’t you get tired of the “investment” emails you get? I’ll bet I get at least two of these things a day.

The other emails I get tired of receiving are all the male enhancement stuff. I say stuff because I haven’t opened any to see what they are offering.

Then there are vitamins etc pill factories. Oh yeah, and the cheap software packages. What about the ones that just say “Hi” or whatever.

That’s only part of the junk. There is always plenty of the African Money Deal, or now it’s from other places too. And the you’ve won the British or Canadian lottery.

What’s up with all this junk…does anyone really fall for any of it. Obviously they do, or they wouldn’t keep sending it.

And don’t get me started on all the forwarded emails from “friends”.

So your challenge is to share the ones you hate and don’t break this chain, tell 5 other bloggers about this or else something bad will happen to you by tomorrow morning.


  1. The ones that kill me the most are the ones which say something like “If you don’t forward this, you don’t love Jesus.” or the like. Just one more reason I don’t own a gun…

  2. I have a friend who has a blog where he posts all the spam he gets. It starts to get kind of artistic after awhile. Sort of like when you watch several episodes of CSI: Miami in a row, and you start to think David Caruso is actually kind of entertaining.

  3. We emailed a photo of a missionary to his mother a year ago, and she sent us a thank you…and a steady flow of crap ever since. It’s mostly cute animal pictures, which I politely asked her to stop sending. But a few weeks ago she sent us a chain email asking us to fast for Iraq last Sunday. A rant and tirade ensued.

  4. I probably get more than my share because I have about five different email aliases that all map to me which all art overtly clickable in various web pages. This means that all the email harvesters pick me up fairly regularly. So I get over 1500 spam messages a day – most thankfully caught by my filters.

    The ones that get through which I hate are the misspelling emails. You know, the ones that go,

    VI_zAGRA $3, 35
    VA_zLIUM $1, 20
    AM_zBIEN $2, 90
    CI_zALIS $3, 75
    XA_zNAX $1, 45


    Pharmacy directly from the manufacturer, economize over 50 %

    http://www.lodrx*.com – Remove “*” to make the link working!

    Or better yet the misspellings of many naughty words designed to send me to some Russian porn site which undoubtedly has a hundred scripts designed to take advantage of every security hole Microsoft ever had in Internet Explorer.

    Their offering to add three inches to your mortgage.

  6. Phonetically. Otherwise, read as “they are.”

  7. I get about two or three recorded phone messages a week offering satellite TV and better mortgage deals. My apartment has neither a mortgage nor access to satellites.

  8. I especially love those chain email stories about some cute little tyke in grade school who, with a most unchildlike command of grammar, trustingly and sweetly asks his teacher a “simple question” that rocks the teacher’s world and just goes to show that the Republican party is true after all.

    Add the reading and forwarding of these kind of emails to regular listening to right-wing talk radio and daily viewing of Jerry Springer, and you’ve got yourself a trifecta for the ideal American citizen.

  9. My favorite is the fact that someone is using my legitimate work email address in the from field to send out spam, and I regularly get bounces from bad addresses.

    Spammers should go to jail.
