How to deal with the scammers: here

I've always wanted to have a go at drawing one of these wankers out but this guy's persistence has to be admired!

It's now 21 days since any junk mail turned up in my in-box.

WOOHOO! I'm not quite sure what my record is but I think this may be it. Of course, what I don't tell you is that almost every piece of legitimate e-mail also ends in the junk mail folder too but if that's the price I have to pay .....

..... since my last piece of junk mail arrived. Has the world run out of viagra? Does no-one need penis enlargements any more? Have Rolex watches become unreliable? Maybe I actually have to go and study in order to get a degree?

I like the quiet.

..... and counting since I last got any junk mail in my in-box. Nice!

I thought my spam drought was over tonight with 6 in my junk mail folder. On a closer look, all six were genuine e-mails which I did need to read. It is now 11 days since I got any real spam but I think the filter has gone rogue, putting everything into the junk mail folder!

..... since the last piece of spam darkened my inbox. That filter really is working well these days!

A solitary piece of spam finally darkened the doorway of my in-box (yeah, yeah, that phrase doesn't work, so sue me!) after 10 days clear. Damn!

It has been seven days since I got any spam! I wish I knew why the filter works so seamlessly sometimes and then fails so dismally at other times. Still, the quiet is nice.

I just noticed that that I haven't had a single piece of spam for three days again - the filter must have kicked in or something !

Spam finally arrived in my junk e-mail folder - but just one piece, mind you. Not bad considering that I would usually have had about 400 or so arrive in that 10-day period. A reduction of 99.75% is not to be sneezed at!

10 days since my last spam arrived - have I got the perfect filter somehow? Regardless, the reprieve is nice.

Nine days since the last spam showed up - strangely liberating and yet still disconcerting!

Now eight days since the last junk e-mail turned up. I don't know what to think!

It has now been seven days since a single piece of junk e-mail has got to my in-box. I feel like I have missed out a whole world of cheap viagra, degrees for "Life Experience" and bargain rolex watches, not to mention all the lotteries I could have won and all the widows of retired Nigerian generals who need my help!

It has been three days without a single spam email arriving in my in-box - I'm not sure whether to be relieved or insulted! :-)

Perhaps my persistent addition of *every* *single* spam e-mail to my blocked senders list had paid off at last. Of course, I am perfectly aware that I may have now jinxed the run so I will probably get my usual 30-40 arrivals tomorrow.
