More Spam Please

Is your spam flood a mere trickle? Do you get at least 100 pieces of spam per day like I do? Want to bump up your spam quotient? Try these tips:

    Put an E-mail address on a high-traffic Web site.

    Post (or reply to a post) on Usenet.

    Post (or reply to a post) on a public Web-based discussion group.

    Register the address with a Web site that goes out of business and sells its list.

    Register the address with a Web site that sells its list.

    Subscribe to a porn site with the address.

    Reply to an opt-out E-mail or click on an opt-out link in a message.

    Use an address with a common name that can be easily guessed (such as [email protected]).

    Register a domain name.

    Post an E-mail address in a chat room. [TechWeb]

Good, common sense spam generation. Maybe half of those apply to me, and my spam quota is most robust! But to really maximize it, I’m going to have to be more diligent.

Do I filter? No, because they don’t really work, I don’t want to miss anything I should be getting, and I can spot the spam a mile away and just delete the little bundles of shit without opening them. I am my own filter. Do you filter? What works and what doesn’t? Let us know.
