They're just short, fat, bald, 30-yr old virgins, who wouldn't know a good
bit of social-interaction / physical-exercise / philanthropic-activity /
decent-thought if it bit them on their soft little arses.

What's wrong with 30 year old virgins?

Spammers should be sentenced to 30 days of solitary confinement with the same 30 second used car lot ad playing in a loop in their cell 24 hours a day.

That's inhumane torture! Lethal injection would be a kinder punishment.

I sort my incoming Emails by size. This batch are all between 144k and 156k bytes and nothing else is. So then I can select and delete. I had a couple of hundred over the weekend to clear this morning. Cheers John
