Spam and Trojans Exist Because People are STUPID!

That's right, don't blame the spammer, don't blame the guy writing the Trojan horse attachment in your email, blame yourself and your stupid friends.

Why blame yourself and your stupid friends?

Because if people weren't so fucking stupid to buy shit advertised in spam or open those fucking Trojan horse email attachments then the authors of that shit would simply go away.

That's right, all you idiots that think you're going to get millions from some asshole trying to launder money in Nigeria or wherever it is this week, if you weren't so fucking gullible to send those scammers money they'd never send a second email.

You seriously think Wal-mart is giving you a $500 gift certificate?

Think dipshit, think hard, did you ever give Wal-mart your email address?

More importantly, how many limp dicks are out there to warrant so much email about viagra and cialis?

Even more importantly, how stupid do you have to be to take pills offered from a spam that doesn't even require a doctor's prescription?

Those black market pills can kill but maybe that's a good thing because at least people buying from those spams would go away and so would the spams.

So here's the real question, what possesses idiots to open email from people they don't know and then open attachments from these same strangers?

Now let's get down to business:

DO NOT send me emails telling me not to open certain emails because I won't open your email either. Anyone stupid enough to circulate shit telling me not to open something I would never open in the first place, nor should you open, shouldn't be on my email contact list in the first place.

DO NOT warn me about the latest virus. I already know about it because I subscribe to computer security feeds to keep on top of this shit and so should you. The fact that you're emailing me about the same shit I'm getting in my security feed means you really shouldn't be in my email contact list, Linked-in, or friend in Facebook.

So repeat after me:

If you don't know the sender, put the email in the blender.

Delete, rinse and repeat.

P.S. Share this with a stupid friend, have your stupid friend share with their stupid friends, and we might end spam and Trojans in your lifetime.

I agree in principle, but I long for the good 'ole days where it was commonplace for people you didn't know to send an e-mail and, many times, you'd make a new friend.

To me the problem is in the fact that e-mail is being used as a file transfer medium and that in-line "attachments" can be used to "enrich the e-mail experience" by automatically opening and executing on the user's machine. A few years ago, my Realtor sent me an infected e-mail that happened because her system was itself infected and sent itself to everyone in her address list. I wasn't affected (infected?) because I still use a text-based e-mail client (just call me old school) (seriously, everyone else does!).

Your comments about spam are spot-on. When I've seen the TV news magazine programs about people who were duped by the Nigerian schemes, I had to wonder what in the world they were thinking...or not...
