Sonlight Hates Spam

After a fantastic 4-day weekend, my junk folder was packed with more than 340 spam messages. At least 20 more have piled up since this morning. I wade through all of them in the off-chance that it's a real message from you that my computer mis-categorized (which happens).

This inundation of my inbox reminded me of Sonlight's anti-spam policy.


And, just so you know, the "CAN" in CAN-SPAM is more on lines of "can it"/get-rid-of-it than "you're allowed to do this" ...which confused me for a long while when I first bumped into the Federal Trade Commission's CAN-SPAM Act.

We want to get you all the homeschool helps and special offers we can, but we never want to spam you.

I'm guessing you probably had a pretty good holiday. What's been the best part of today, the Monday after a long weekend?

  1. Welcome to the Bat Cave

    You need Gmail! They have the best spam filter known to mankind. :)

    Agreed. I never get spam on gmail.

    Most of my spam this morning was from company lists to which I had inadvertently subscribed. It was all sent in honor of "Cyber Monday," a new holiday apparently. I spent some time this morning unsubscribing.

    I know about the spam! Like your illustration.

    Best part of today ... working at a leisurely pace.

    Did have a good Thanksgiving, and glad you did as well. wb

    Holding my baby. That's been the best part of every day.

    I use Gmail regularly, and it does have a great spam filter. But, I still get at ton of spam, it's just in my Spam folder there too <smile>.

    Yes, I hadn't heard about Cyber Monday until this year, Kris. Odd.

    Thanks, Warren! Glad you've been able to keep working at a leisurely pace despite coming back to it all after the holiday.

    Dana, that is fantastic <smile>. Great example.
