Rant #20: I Hate Spammers

At one time, during the pre-Internet days, spammers were people who liked to eat Spam. I never understood the fascination with this processed food, but so be it, they weren't bothering anyone.

In this day and age, the term "spammers" has taken on a brand new meaning. Spammers are people who spread negative email about subjects that no one wants to read about. Some spammers also spread pornography and computer viruses, malware, trojans, and the like.

I don't understand the philosophy behind what spammers do. Why do they do it? What do they get out of it? What pleasure do they get in doing this, and more importantly, where do they find the time?

Most email programs now have some sort of spam protection, but the spam still manages to slip through from time to time. As the owner of two blogs and several other music-oriented sites, I can tell you that while spamming is down probably 90 percent of what it once was, it still exists.

Again, I don't have the slightest idea what drives these people to do what they do.

And now, about people who like Spam ...


  1. What drives spammers to do what they do is money. Spamming costs very little, so that even a couple responses out of a million can make money for them.

  2. I guess that is what motivates anybody to do anything. By the way, since this post, I have noticed that I have received several spam messages in my email, so it proves two things: 1) these people are truly sick, and,
    2) somebody besides you is reading this blog

    I took care of the spam, and thanks spammers for backing up what I said--more than one person is visiting this blog.
