The spamtards are among us

This article from CNET says a staggering amount of people out there are still clicking on spam to see what it is (Hint: if it’s in the spam folder, that’s likely to be what it is,) or worse yet, they want to respond to it (thus validating your email address.)

It’s the year 2010. Whoever is doing the clicking, you should know better.

Now if you’ll excuse me, Barrister Nigel Okumya from Nigeria needs my bank account number and routing number so he can transfer $1.25 million USD to my account from some government official who died in a plane crash and had no will, and mysteriously named me the recipient of all of his funds. I just have to send him a cashier’s check for $1,500 to cover expenses.

Seems fair.…..right?
