- Fizzy Thoughts: The weasels are winning

The weasels are winning

Sunday, January 06, 2008

I think I'm going to be forced into changing my email over to a gmail account that I've had for awhile but never used. Goowy is being beset by spammers, and their spam filter sucks to the point that it's worthless. I probably got 30 emails today suggesting either I enlarge an organ I don't even have or play casino games. What made it particularly bad today was that I was getting duplicates (and one time triplicate) emails from the same person. No, not person. Annoying weasel.

So I spent a good part of the afternoon moving contacts and changing my email notification from a few places over to gmail. I'll give it a few days and see how gmail performs. If all goes well, I might be forced to send that annoying email that my email has changed.
And to top it all off, I don't even like my gmail email address. It's my alter ego and it's a pain in the ass to type.

why don't you just make a new gmail address?

like, if softdrink is taken, you could be softdrinkhb? or is softdrink your alter ego? if it is, then i agree about it being a pain to type!! :) ha ha

Is there no way to set up a filter so you don't get all that junk mail ?

And then I get spammed in the comments...oh, the irony.

Mack, I'm running out of softdrink/sodapop options. I can't have too many different names, otherwise I'd never be able to keep them all straight!

Lisa, goowy (the old email) has no filters. Unlike gmail, which is performing admirably so far.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
