I’ve mentioned in the past that I know a lot of people named Mike. When we were at SXSW, all of the Mikes there ended up with nicknames so that we could keep them straight. Coffee Mike, Moose Mike, Beta Mike (also known as Mike the Lawyer), Disney Mike, and the list went on.
So it shouldn’t be a surprise that my latest spam had a subject line of “Mike Wants You to See This”. I figured that Mike probably saw something that he knew I would be interested in and sent me an e-mail about it using the “E-mail to a Friend” options that some sites have. Nope. It was spam, and I was suckered in to opening it. This weekend, I’m installing iHateSpam after reading Jennifer’s testimonial about it. The softwares is free after rebate on Amazon right now, so if I like it I’ll order a full copy. I’m still waiting on the pointers from Matt on anti-spam tactics too. Have any tips that you want to share?
I am going to win this battle. Oh yes, yes, I am.
