Now for my next resolution (just recently made) I am trying to cut out spam in my life. Due to online shopping (a weakness) I am cursed with an incredible amount of emails from vendors that I would just assume not be getting. I will come to them if and when I am interested but I don't want to hear about every sale going on 10 times a day. Oh my goodness! I just checked my email in the midst of writing this post and got some spam comment on my blog. Lovesecrets.com is calling and I don't want to answer. That has to be some sort of weird fate. It's like Big Brother is always watching and He can see what I am writing about. I guess I better put my spam blocking word verification back up.
To stop all the emails I have been "unsubscribing" like crazy for the past week. I know it takes time for the block to work but I am not seeing any improvement yet. The ones I hate are the ones where you are directed to the shopping site itself in order to unsubscribe. They are just counting on someone as impatient as me to forget about reading all the fine print, possibly go shopping for a bit, and keep getting their stupid junk mail. Yes, I mean you QVC. And I never even bought from you but I had to sign on with an account just to look. Pretty sneaky Sis! Someone showed me a trick of 'bouncing' the email back to the sender making it seem as if it's not a valid email address. I haven't had much luck doing this. Maybe I am not bouncing the right way. If anyone knows of some good suggestions for me I am all ears. Those are some emails I would be glad to click on. I will also be glad to open up a can of processed meat and grill it up for dinner. We can all use more of that kind of Spam in my opinion.
