    the problem with spam 

    spamis that i do want a bigger penis.

    i would like to lose weight with Phentermine.

    i would like to buy direct and save hundreds on your auto warranty!

    even though my penis is nice, and i only have about 5 lbs left to lose

    and i dont have a car.

    the problem with spam is that it offers me things that i never thought i wanted, but there it is in my personal email account, there on my beloved home computer, in the nook of my home, and it wants me to click for more information.

    and then they lie to me because their products dont work.

    my penis isnt really going to get any bigger.

    im not going to save hundreds on my auto warranty!

    i clicked an email offer that promised that i could “watch fools in real street fights” and the email was empty.

    what a tease.

    i want to watch fools in real street fights .

    i like the spam that addresses me personally. even though i get a lot of real emails from real people about real thing, i like the spam that says, “Tony, Earn a Paralegal Degree Today!”

    Spam, thank you, i think i could use a paralegal degree TODAY!

    unfortunately i think i confuse the bots that collect my email addresses because on my website i oftentimes encourage people to write to me on various email accounts. ones that are specific to the topic at hand.

    for example i have a link on this blog that allows you to email me at blog@tonypierce.com, that way i know that people are using that link.

    when people paypal my ass they use paypal@tonypierce.com, my kazaa address is kazaa@tonypierce.com. (maybe i should change that one.)

    this creates spam that sometimes says things like “Paypal, Start Saving on Healthcare for You and Your Family” or “blog, Small Blue Pill, BIG Savings!”

    what i dont understand, though, is spam that is emailed to tony@tonypierce.com that says “Tony Pierce, how would you like to have Tony@TonyPierce.com?”

    unlike most people i dont get upset at spam because i read all my mail online now, which i highly recommend because it prevents most email-borne viruses. most.

    currently im using SBC/Yahoo as my email client since they provide my internet access.

    this week they have decided to put all my proper mail and send it to my Junk mail folder.

    meanwhile all the Junk mail that i have “reported” to them as being junk still finds its way easilly into my Inbox.

    because its friday and because i actually scan through all my folders i have found some of the mail that was incorrectly redirected and recovered it.

    but if i havent replied to your email by this Monday please dont have your feelings hurt, it was eaten by the evil. just resend it.

    if you want you can send it to godiloveyou@tonypierce.com

    orby online + brent devries + totally awesome
