As a former retail manager for 15 years, schooled in Industrial and Organizational psychology, and now attempting website design, I absolutely loved your page:http://www.32keys.co...ail-ethics.html
You hit the nail on the head, so well...and I enjoyed the quotes on the left, too. So appropriate reading for Black Friday shopping season!
Spam also comes from infected computers that harvest any email addy they can find. Considerate people delete headers from emails before forwarding them, and use the BCC function to hide their friends' addresses. If it's any consolation, I have recently started getting a bunch of the exact same kind of spam, and they all have different links for me to click. I don't work in the malware forum, so I'm not interested in the new infections, but I'd bet those links lead to some. I just delete them. My ISP has a pretty good spam filter ( a quick glance and I can delete them all in a click) and there are some other third party programs you can purchase, but spam is an unavoidable nuisance just like the junk that clogs up our real life mailboxes. I stand at the Post Office where they have thoughtfully provided a big trash can and sort the mail before I go home (we have no mail delivery in our little village) and most of the mail is gone before I leave. You're already using a throwaway account, and that is about the best you can do. Never open spam if you can avoid it- sometimes that lets the company know that your addy is valid. Just delete it. If you do accidentally open it, never be a sucker for the social engineering enticing you to click a link. Ever. Unless you want to line up in the malware forum with a major headache.
Thanks for sharing the link!
