So you wish to drop me an email...
Q: What's up?
A: I have no need for breast enlargements...
...or fake Rolex watches and I do not borrow my bank account to people who wish to temporarily park 43000000 (FOURTY THREE MILLION) dollars on it. Due to the extraordinary amounts of SPAM that I receive day for day, I've finally decided to give in and change my habits by more than just a bit. Don't worry, unlike other people I still do wade through the email in my inbox. At least through part of it. Which brings me to the point: I have some very aggressive settings on my filtering software! If some piece of email carries only the slightest signs of SPAM, it gets thrown into the bitbucket and that is it. So be careful not to send HTML only or lock down your CAPS key.
Q: How can people work around it?
A: Send your email to my initials at ginac dot de.
All my email goes to the same account. It has always been so and ever will. However, it is filtered in different ways depending on what address you sent it to. So, in order to make it more likely that email goes through, send it to the account named my initials (all three of them) at ginac dot de. And, please, don't give that address to anybody and don't publish it.
Q: How long is this going to persist?
A: Until all Spammers have been thrown into prison...
...and the keys have been thrown away and spamming is considered a capital crime in all civilized countries. Seriously, SPAM is a major problem for netizens like me. Unfortunately, I know of no good way of fighting it. Hence, I can only run away from it. I'll just see how well this new scheme works.
