In those situations, I have NO trouble telling the offending person that they need to stop sending me those emails.

I ended up having to do that as well, buy that only works for so long. They'll forget that you told them that, and before you know it, again, here come those annoying spamming e-mails. Like you never told them at all to stop doing that.

But what really makes my blood boil is that when they send you those e-mails, they are usually sent as attachments and are forwarded with other peoples' addresses, and everybody and their brother has your e-mail address.

People that you don't even know!

Back in the days of Unix and the shell account I could mark and forward entire news groups to mail accounts.

I had Warp V4, it was great, but there was no support.

I forget which Unix/Linux I had loaded a few years ago, it worked fine but there were very few programs available. I hoped that changed.

I would like to try Linux again but in a way Linux reminds me of the PC of a decade or so ago. Multiple flavors changing day to day.

And this is an integrated PC, Which flavor will taste best to this PC? Or which flavor will even WORK in this PC? OTOH its an Intel G33 board, wouldn't be difficult to find out everything I need to know.

I spend WAY too much time on this as it is, maybe this winter ....

So one does an innocent internet search, one of these sites pops up at the top of the list, the link is clicked on and the user finds themselves at a syphlitic site.

The article I read this in said most of these types of sites were based in China and had a CA extension (www.xyz.CA). I tend to stay away from sites with such a designation.

On occasion I get pop-ups with what Corey described. I just close them. The 'pay X amount of money' for results is a garden variety scam. Sure I'll give some pop up any financial information .... Yeah, Right.

With NIS 2006? 2004? I'd have to look for the disk, I never had pop ups or banner ads. Then I upgraded and golly their back. The pop up behinds are the worst.


Yeah, when I close out of a website or Windows Mail (formerly Outlook Express), there's a pop-up waiting behind those! How annoying they are!!
