After some thought, I'd have to say that the thing I'm most thankful for this holiday season is my Yahoo! bulk mail porn filter. This weekend I think I received about a zillion messages, and endorsements that I'm rather glad I didn't have to wade through in my inbox. Messages from people like Harry Potter or Fisting Chicks (which is not a pop-country music band, as I've been led to believe.)
Here's a few things I've noticed about the automated porn messages: The sender name is completely automated, probably since they don't have time to come up with all the nasty variations themselves. Instead, the computer randomly assigns two nasty words together like: Pink Dildos, Teen Humping, or Teen Dildos. Although, I'm still confused how Harry Potter sent me an email about barnyard sex.
Also, the subjet line is completely automated, but it still manages to personalize the experience for me: "Robot, do you want to see hot pink nasties...?" BUT, I also think it's funny that not only are the people that prorgrammed the porn-bot computer lazy - the automated computer is also really lazy. Especially when it just gives-up halfway through the subject line: "Want to check out sexy jghdjgjdhf?"
Anyway, I digress. I just want to give a holiday 'shout-out' to all the lab geeks out there on porn watch. While many people stuff themselves this holiday weekend, and my inbox tells of other kinds of stuffings going on, I thankfully, don't have to watch either of it.
