The most annoying spam of 2002
BBC News ^ | January 24, 2003 | BBC News

Posted on 01/24/2003 1:21:35 AM PST by MadIvan

Every person on the net has one thing in common. They all hate spam.


E-mails offering Viagra via the net
Anyone who has an e-mail account will have received these unsolicited commercial messages that offer you things you do not want, at prices you will not pay, from companies you will never call.

2002 was a bumper year for these messages and now 30% of all mail flying around the net is thought to be spam.

Filtering firm Surf Control has compiled a list of the top 10 most annoying spam messages sent across the net in the last 12 months.

Message overload

Unsurprisingly, top of the list were messages with a sexual theme.

The most annoying spam purported to pass on to people free passwords for sex sites that usually levy a charge to look beyond the front page.

Spam top 10
  • Free adult site passwords
  • Low price drugs (Viagra)
  • Refinance your mortgage
  • Nigerian confidential money transfer
  • Tiny remote control car
  • Best online casino
  • #1 Pasta pot
  • Get out of credit card debt
  • Meet singles in your area
  • Copy DVDs in one click
Next on the list was a pharmaceutical service offering people the sex drug Viagra.

Also on the list of most annoying spam messages were those asking people to help get money out of various African nations.

These 419 scams as they are called are entirely bogus but regularly catch out gullible net users who let their greed overwhelm their common sense.

Costly business

Surf Control estimates that spam costs businesses around the world about $9billion a year to deal with.

This estimate includes the time it takes people to delete the messages, the cost of buying larger mail servers and storage systems to cope with in-boxes flooded with the messages and the cost of having staff unclog networks overloaded by spam.

There is little sign of an end to unsolicited mail.

Last year, one in 12 e-mails passing through MessageLabs' filter system was identified as spam.

The e-mail filtering company has warned of a dramatic rise in the amount of spam clogging in-boxes

It says the amount of spam will exceed normal e-mails by around July.

Spam probably can't get much more annoying than this:

Hail To The Spammer In Chief?

By Declan McCullagh -- January 20, 2003, 4:00 AM PT

WASHINGTON--Sen. Joseph Lieberman hopes to become the first Democratic president from Connecticut, the first Jewish president, and the first senator to win the White House since John F. Kennedy.

Good for him. Our problem is that Lieberman also is itching to be our spammer-in-chief.

It's no joke. Within hours of announcing his plans to seek the Democratic nomination for the job last week, Lieberman started spamming around a message titled: "Beginning an Amazing Journey." It said: "I have the strength, vision, and values to lead our nation to higher ground."

To broadcast this momentous news, Lieberman used an outfit called Roving Software of Waltham, Mass., which sells a bulk-mail service called ConstantContact. Bulk mailers pay from $10 to about $2,000 a month for the service. Roving claims to occupy a market niche reminiscent of the dot-com boom, describing itself as a "pre-IPO, venture-backed" start-up boasting revenue growth of "more than 40 percent per quarter in 2002."

Woman: "How about some strawberry tart?"

Man: "Has it got any rat in it?"

Woman: "Some ..."

Man: "How many?"

Woman: "Three"

Man: "I'll have some strawberry tart with not so much rat in it"

Narrator: "One 'strawberry tart with not so much rat in it' later ..."

Man: "DISGUSTING!"

Woman: "Complain, complain, complain! You never like anything I fix!"

Hi Ivan. I posted this commentary I wrote awhile back ago, but it will go just fine on this thread.

"ADULT CONTENT" -Commentary by Cindy


Here is the latest disclaimer I have on my "Editor's Notebook" page. The ugly e-mailers have decided to advance their games. I'm sure other people here on FR experience this too.

"A NOTE FROM CINDY to ****.com Readers regarding my e-mail: First of all let me tell you that my e-mail works fine thank you, so please rest assured that I do read your e-mail and send you a no-virus response. Now here's the E-MAIL UPDATE: The bad guys just never give up. They're still sending mail using my e-mail address. I even get some of the return e-mail that supposedly I have sent. I'm not the only one this is happening to. Very sad, isn't it? FYI: None of the ****.com web pages bulk e-mail, have e-mail lists, spam, or are associated with porn and/or other criminal activities. ****.com never signs guest books, solicits for money, does not take money and never will. ****.com never places classified advertisements in singles/sex/porn sites. ****.com never sells products. A Book of Interest connected with the subject matter being discussed may be linked on various web pages. I have never submittted a job resume online nor am I looking for a job. So employers, please IGNORE those false "resumes" that are supposedly coming from me. Thank you. ~end~

I WISH FOR THE DAY WHEN LAWS REGARDING E-MAILS HAVE SOME TEETH TO THEM. Wishful thinking, I'm sure...

Here's a response to SPAM that I tacitly agree with:

MIKE WENDLAND: Internet spammer can't take what he dishes out

December 6, 2002

BY MIKE WENDLAND
FREE PRESS COLUMNIST

West Bloomfield bulk e-mailer Alan Ralsky, who just may be the world's biggest sender of Internet spam, is getting a taste of his own medicine.

Ever since I wrote a story on him a couple of weeks ago (www.freep.com/money/tech/mwend22_20021122.htm), he says he's been inundated with ads, catalogs and brochures delivered by the U.S. Postal Service to his brand-new $740,000 home.

It's all the result of a well-organized campaign by the anti-spam community, and Ralsky doesn't find it funny.

"They've signed me up for every advertising campaign and mailing list there is," he told me. "These people are out of their minds. They're harassing me."

That they are. Gleefully. Almost 300 anti-Ralsky posts were made on the Slashdot.org Web site, where the plan was hatched after spam haters posted his address, even an aerial view of his neighborhood.

"Several tons of snail mail spam every day might just annoy him as much as his spam annoys me," wrote one of the anti-spammers.

Ralsky is indeed annoyed. He says he's asked Bloomfield Hills attorney Robert Harrison to sue the anti-spammers.

I'll go open my Yahoo mail - I deleted it all at least 3 hours ago. There must be plenty more by now.

Yep! There are 29 unsolicited emails already. Here's some:

I just checked my Hotmail account, which is one of the worst offenders. I found over 200 spam mails in there and not single one directly for me.

Most of them were advertisements for porn sites. One was to announce the sale of MLB Bobble Head Dolls.

This is from an anti-spam site - it has multiple sources so I won't attribute it.

From: "[name]" <[blank]@{blank]>
To: "[name]" <[blank]@[blank]>
Subject: Open letter to spammers
Date: Fri, 4 Jan 2002 00:57:00 -0600

Mr. Spammer, you swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As they say in Texas. I'll bet you couldn't pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel. You are a canker. A sore that won't go away. I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you.

You're a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon.

You are a bleating foal, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done.

I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell?

Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly.

You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up, drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs.

You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You're a fool, an ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won't have sex with you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot.

And what meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us? What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of the snake? You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a disease, you puerile one-handed slack-jawed drooling meatslapper.

On a good day you're a half-wit. You remind me of drool. You are deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted. You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go.

You smarmy lagerlout git. You bloody woofter sod. Bugger off, pillock. You grotty wanking oik artless base-court apple-john. You clouted boggish foot-licking twit. You dankish clack-dish plonker. You gormless crook-pated tosser. You churlish boil-brained clotpole ponce. You cockered bum-bailey poofter. You craven dewberry pisshead cockup pratting naff. You gob-kissing gleeking flap-mouthed coxcomb. You dread-bolted fobbing beef-witted clapper-clawed flirt-gill.

You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go away. I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid so stupid that it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I'm sorry. I can't go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me. After this, you my not hear from me again for a while. I don't have enough strength left to deride your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh.

The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us "normal" people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering. But we sometimes forget that there are "challenged" persons in this world who find these things more difficult. If I had known, that this was your case then I would have never read your post. It just wouldn't have been "right". Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you.

P.S.

You are hypocritical, greedy, violent, malevolent, vengeful, cowardly, deadly, mendacious, meretricious, loathsome, despicable, belligerent, opportunistic, barratrous, contemptible, criminal, fascistic, bigoted, racist, sexist, avaricious, tasteless, idiotic, brain-damaged, imbecilic, insane, arrogant, deceitful, demented, lame, self-righteous, byzantine,conspiratorial, satanic, fraudulent, libelous, bilious, splenetic, spastic, ignorant, clueless, illegitimate, harmful, destructive, dumb, evasive, double-talking, devious, revisionist, narrow, manipulative, paternalistic, fundamentalist, dogmatic, idolatrous, unethical, cultic, diseased, suppressive, controlling, restrictive, malignant, deceptive, dim, crazy, weird, dystopic, stifling, uncaring, plantigrade, grim, unsympathetic, jargon-spouting, censorious, secretive, aggressive, mind-numbing, arassive, poisonous, flagrant, self-destructive, abusive, socially-retarded, puerile, clueless, and generally Not Good.

In other words, go away.

I use a utility called MailWasher to control spam. It works like a front end to your email client and allows you to check the message and delete, bounce or accept the message. If you bounce it, the sender receives a message that says your email addres is non-existant and any other emails from that sender is automatically rejected. It's a free utility but they do request a fee of up to $20 to register.

My main email source is now Time Warner's Road Runner which I've used for two years. I have never received a single piece of spam and I've done no special filtering. I don't know how they do it but it's great. When I used AOL I was bombarded with junk.

THat is exactly what I told MSN the other day, I could be arrested, even though I do not open those site and delete them, they are still there.

MSN told me I could open and unsubscribe, oh good move, then I would have to view their trash. I updated to a newer version of MSN, which does filter better, but then it simply puts it into JUNK MAIL, big deal, I still have to delete. I just want it stopped. Does MSN sell our email addresses?

Adam Kovacevich, a Lieberman campaign spokesman, said: "It is absolutely clear who sent this e-mail, and we specifically provided recipients with an unsubscribe option. This is not spam."

Sounds like just the type to work for Lieberman.

If it's sent in bulk and I didn't specifically request it, it's spam. Period.

I'm trying to figure out if people consider the spam itself most annoying or that the free passwords aren't really free.

My Hotmail account - mostly the junk mail - always has that crap in it, the penis-lengthening, hot chicks having sex with animals, you can make lot$$ of money, etc., etc., and I'm afraid to open it at all, for fear of viruses. MSN is nuts if they think "unsubscribing" is going to eliminate any of it. I've blocked hundreds of senders of this garbage, and there's no let up.

The companies don't "play fair" to begin with.

Anytime I've ever replied to an unsolicited email to be removed from a list, the email has bounced from their address provided (and not with a "mailbox full" message).

Additionally, I've been advised not to respond to those offers to be dropped from the list. When you respond, you let them know that they have a working email account.

Sure it's illegal in America, but if these sites aren't landed in America there is less likelihood on prosecution (or violation).

MY least favorite is this one, I get it once a month and they just refuse to take me off their list.

"Best Income Opportunity In Years" blah blah blah, Then at hthe Bottom it says this:If you previously asked to be excluded from Resource Source Masters product offerings and solicitations, we apologize for this e-mail. Every effort was made to ensure that you were excluded from this e-mail. However, if "Resource Source Masters" does not have your current e-mail address in their database, they are unable to prevent this e-mail from reaching you. If you do not wish to receive promotional e-mail from Resource Source Masters, CLICK HERE.

I click and they still send me more B.S. E-Mails. Damn these people! "freebizsource@flashmail.com" can go burn in H___!

The last thing you want to do with spam is click the "To be removed from this list, click here" link. Once the spammer gets that reply, he knows he's hit a legitimate e-mail address, and he bumps your address up to a "premium" list to sell to other spammers.

These people are truly the most loathsome creatures in the universe.
