Normal Congratulation!!! Your Email Address Has Won A Lottery Read Below:

Why the hell would I even bother with an email subject line like that? What is the idiot spammer's objective here?

I've gotten a lot of those lately, but I've been baffled by how many of those scam emails I've been getting ... you know the ones:

"Greetings! I am Lord So and So of Blah Blah Blah country. I have $2,234,364,752 pounds that I cannot access and I need your help to free the rebel fighters and give me your bank account and I'll wire you a gajillion dollars immediately!"

Did I somehow give my email address to a website that identifies me as a complete rube, or what?

I mean what kind of lowlife would one have to be to constantly fill up people's inboxes with messages that don't make any sense???

These people should be found out and punished! What's a good punishment? Electric Chair?

When the deposed son of the king of Nigeria asks for you to send him money, you don't ask questions. I mean, his father ran the freakin' country!

I keep getting the UK Lottery emails. I mark them every time as spam but they keep coming from different addresses. How did I get on their list?

I constantly get those UK lottery things in my gmail account. I have no idea how - I never registered that e-mail anywhere. Most of them go to trash, but every once in a while one escapes and makes it into my Inbox.

Yup...I get those daily. They suck. It just makes it more difficult to sort through the good mail.
