My parents are sniffing around, and a gigantic musical popups appears saying "ENLARGE YOUR PENIS THIS MUCH!" with a full screen picture of an animated penis growing.

I've had about 7 e-mails today about **** enlargement pills. I pressed the unsubscribe on them so hopefully I was signed up as a joke and can opt out.

I have a spam filter anyway.

Is this on the internet or your television?

I'm getting to dislike I really hate it threads. Though I sympathise with your situation. Just get a popup blocker. There is one advertised in the main page at yahoo.com.

Worst thing to do. Now they know you exist and you can expect more

Yeah, I know, well,

They have images in anyway. They use the images to confirm that you're actually getting the e-mail by putting a querystring in the URL to the image that contains your e-mail address, so when it's requested when you view the e-mail (you cant delete them in outlook express without viewing which means viewing image) they know your email has got it.

You should never reply to unsolicited email as it simply confirms your address is valid and makes it all the more valuable to spammers, ie. u end up receiving more

Sorry to make another "I hate it thread." And I don't wnat a popup blocker, as I don't usually have a problem. I'm just a little worried what my parents will think, when they see penises all over my computer screen, especially as they know I'm gay.

My spam used to be bad and then the spam laws were made and it quietened down, but i gave my address to a member of this forum who sent me barrages of crappy Email and i now seem to get more spam Email. I think i may start to hack them if everything works out.

People dont sign you up for a joke, spam is simply a computer sending emails to combinations of letters and numbers, and every now and then it gets a combination of numbers and letters right, and you get an email..
I too get the penis enlargement emails, but the best thing to do is just use the block sender tool in outlook express, although it doesnt do much
