Spam

Is anyone else being bombarded with spam advertising Viagra, other virility supplements and penis enlargement drugs? Perhaps it's just a coincidence but ever since I had my RP and joined this Discussion Group I have been receiving tons of the afore mentioned advertisements. Anyone else see a similar coincidence?
Thanks, Sailor

Every day - sometimes more than once a day I get the same spam. It's hard to tell exactly where they come from. My wife has her own e-mail account and she gets then too. I've heard the best thing to do is delete them without opening them. If you open, even one, you tell them you are alive and interested in their e-mail.

I get a lot on my hotmail account but simply deep-six them!! None on my private account.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like it's just a coincidence then, since others, not just in the CSN groups are getting the same spam. I've heard the same thing about deleting without opening, but still they come! Thanks again. Sailor

If you have a hotmail account, you can try "blocking" them (instead of just deleting) but I'm not sure that makes much difference either. They just come from a different address!At any rate don't open them cause that tells them you're a "live wire".If you have some other mail program instead, look into the "options" portion to see if you can effectively filter them out.
