The latest trend in spam seems to be aimed at avoiding being filtered out based
on the sender's address, I now have a couple of solicitation emails in my inbox
that have my own address as the sender. Funny, I don't recall sending out any
get rich quick schemes... I wonder if I should complain to my ISP and see if I
can get myself in trouble? Speaking of spam and related annoyances, someone
wrote in the other day asking why our site was generating external pop-up banner
ads (called interstitials by those who keep track of the official names for
annoyances). My initial response was to suggest this was generated by exiting
some previous porn site or something, but I have learned since then that a
glitch at UGO high command accidentally pumped a few of these down the line over
the course of a couple of days last week. Our apologies for that: Rest assured,
this was accidental... we have some sort of "over my dead body" clause
when it comes to interstitials.
