Having dealt with the issue of malware eating my C drive and reinstalling I took some time to clean my different email inboxes.
My webmail connected to this blog has been onset with spam comments (mainly in kanji) and a local Modiin politician who should really know better has repeatedly snubbed my requests for him to remove my Netvision email address from his mailing list.
1. If someone came up to you on a bus, train or in the street and started telling and selling this unsolicited stuff to you how would you respond? Those of you who know me well know exactly how I would respond to this.
2. Why do we have to put up with this? As consumers isn’t it time we started yelling to the ISP’s and anti-malware / anti-spam developers to create more offensive tools that allow us to fight back.
3. Why won’t the ISP block specific email addresses or even domains on demand – there has to be money in it for them?
I remember installing my first antivirus and my first firewall and deleting my first spam mail.
I would like to remember after all this my first day where my mail is spam free and my web surfing is alert free, wouldn’t you?
