    Finally had enough of these cunts spamming my box, so I decided to take action. Mass deletion + blocked e-mail.

    I have roughly 7400 spam emails spanning across 3 seperate gmail accounts.

    I should mass delete them.

    posting your email on OPEN FORUMS!

    they get harvested and then sold on to spammers!

    HOTMAIL/LIVEMAIL are more prone to HIJACK!

    GMAIL is 6+gb storage for FREE paid for BY SPAM usually generated from your own emails!

    nuff said!

    By not deleting them, if I never deleted any of my spam in my shit account I'd have at least 7,000 emails.


    This is my primary email, I'm pissed that I'm getting 1 spam mail almost everyday.

    I get about 2 spam mails everyday [​IMG]
    I find it funny, but I think my GMail gets slower when I have alot, that's why I delete it now and then.
    Although it could be just me.

    Wow, 6000!? That's a whole internets!

    By the way, had you waited until you had over 9000 spam e-mails, this topic would have been better.

    my gmail is flooded with spam as well, but I don't feel like going in there and weeding through it all, too much work

    Move 1337 back to your inbox, open up MSN/WLM and take a screenshot of the You have 1337 new e-mails toast.
