    Yeah I haven't seen Pony lately. Was he banned or did he just leave?

    Banned. But not perma.

    Though I think it was stressed that he shouldn't come back.

    Also, maybe it was just me, but he didn't seem mean.

    i used to get the craziest spam. i figure some dude realised he could avoid spam filters by padding out the messages with passages from literature.

    I used to get spam sort of like that, except it was a bunch of random, nonsensical phrases without any actual advertisement.

    Yeah I saw that. He's throwing it in the faces of losers who logged onto to alt/joke accounts to try to get him banned. Maybe not the move I would make, but people stacking the votes to get him banned are the bigger assholes in that scenario, I'd say.

    true

    i think the reason a lot of people didn't/don't like pony is because he's just so smug
    he really is the sort of person that enjoys putting people down

    that doesn't excuse them being even worse though

    How the fuck are you getting 200 spam messages a day? I've received 5 unsolicited emails in the last year and a half of using this gmail account.

    Every other email has been from someone I know.

    As I said, I've had this address for 12 years or so.

    In 1997, there really wasn't any spam, so there really wasn't much reason not to put your email address out there. So by now, my address has been crawled by just about every crawler that has ever crawled for addresses.

    you're = you are
    your = belonging to you

    their = belonging to them
    there = not here
    they're = they are

    I have gmail and get maybe one piece of spam a month. Probably less. And it's almost always dropped into the "Spam" folder without ever hitting the inbox.

    I have gmail and i get as much spam in my inbox as I do regular mail. my spam-box perpetually has 7000ish filtered out emails.

    I don't even use that address for porn or anything. I don't know what it is.

    I think I started getting a LOT more spam when I sent my resume to a craigslist job posting, and they referred me to this "sign up for this job hunting site!" I'd say never try craigslist for jobs because most of them seem to be scams or just address/sucker mining, but I got my current job through craigslist, so you never know

    in the case of alt accounts voting for pony i say: who cares? the entire contest was unfair to begin with so why get your panties in a knot over the fact that some people threw in more punches than others?

    i voted for pony myself so it's not like I really dislike their efforts to get him banned, they did at least indirectly lead to his suffering

    i just don't applaud them

    i don't know, i think the amount of windbagging that pony has done in the past has vastly outweighed 2 extra votes in a silly internet poll

    the point is: there was no fairness or undickness in that entire thing so why single folks out

    i actually had people yelping at me for voting tfs

    They probably stopped sending spam to Defender after he kept replying to each spam email individually with an essay on why he wasn't interested in what it was advertising

    Also, this made me chuckle. If only for the hilarious discussion in the Spore thread the other day.

    Ben I don't think that you get spambots.

    I once hit my cousin with a spam email swarm of exponential growth that started out as 12^3rd and incremented upon that.

    I'm bad at math but man in 1998 changing your email addy was kind of a big deal.

    I've had a Hotmail account since pretty much Hotmail opened, I use that as my address when I know I won't be wanting may from that service very often. That thing now a lot of spam, and the filters only catch maybe 2 or 3 a week, but let everything else through.

    My gmail account on the other hand, I get a lot of spam on it, but I never see any of it. They have a good filter there.

    I get this quite regularly on my gmail for some reason, however they are all passages from Harry Potter books. I'm pretty sure I've received the entirety of all the books by now. If I get some today I'll post them

    when you get a huge amount of spam its kinda worrying to think that maybe somewhere hidden in there is an email or two that you want to read
    like an old friend getting in touch
    or some other situation where you are getting something good from an unfamiliar email

    and oh yea the other day in my inbox was an email from something@viagra.com
    i mean how did that get through
