People Are Still Getting Spam

Why am I still gettting this?

1) I deleted this eMail from my host server so the address no longer even exists. There is no-one here. Not known at this address. Return to sender...

2) I deleted the Account from Outlook so it no longer is supposed to check incoming eMail from this non-existent address.

But still this sort of crap turns up in Outlook - OK in the spam folder - addressed to an account that is gone, gone, 110% gone. How does it get there? Yet here we have an email (one of 50 already today) to a person that no longer has that email address, not anyone, not anywhere, and one that Outloook isn't even looking for anymore.

And yet it arrives. Very Gallilean. What the fuck?

One of the reasons I got rid of this account is that I was starting to get spam from bogus accounts like "info@expat-at-large.com" and "accounts@expat-at-large.com"...

Getting spam from yourself is a serious concern.

What the fuck are spammers thinking. What do they think?

OK, we all know what they think. They think "people are stupid", they think "there's a sucker born every minute." They are proud products of the Great American Way. They may not be Americans but that is neither here nor there. They are out to rip off off the weak-minded, the poor-thinkers, the gullible.

Their "Protestant On The Internet I Don't Need To Work If I Can Spam Ethic" of seeing a window of rip-offortunity, going for it, making money from the one in a million, one in a thousand, OK every second idiot with computer, and fuck the irritating consequences to a whole shit-load of other less gullible people - it pisses me off.

They create work-arounds for all sorts of blocking software. They manage to get their spam delivered, through wind and hail and snow and sleet, against barking dogs and NO JUNK MAIL filters. Tough bastards. Hard to kill. Any suggestions other than just yelling into the night sky? --

"Spammers from fucking hell - fuck OOOOFFFFFFFffffffff!!!"

& What have I done wrong right to deserve CAPITAL LETTERS on Mr Wang's blogroll? (I only ever abuse him... I don't think he's put up an opinion that I agree with yet. Maybe he thinks I'm only joking?)

Time for a sequel to the Crying of Lot 49?

Very Zen to Spam yourself.
