Re: Those Viagra Ads

I, too, get these advertisements, and others besides. Being a woman
handling and negotiating bodily injury claims, I can understand why
these spammers may think I may "have a set", but I don't, and don't
care to make any part of my body that I have, or don't have, any
larger than it/they may already be! Though, I have considered the
Prozac ads on particularly hectic days.
But please take note that by clicking on, or otherwise responding
electronically, to any of these type of advertisements (spam), you
risk being either, 1) bombarded by even more advertisements,
because "they" have now confirmed that ours is an active e-mail
address, and/or 2), you run the risk of a computer hacker and/or
virus being run through your computer because once again, they have
confirmed your e-mail address (and therefore your IP address).
Everyday, scams and mass e-mails are being run through unwitting
computer owners, as a proxy, in the background of whatever you are
Take Nancy Reagan's advice, "Just say, 'No' "- just delete them & do
not respond in any way.
Feel free to post this advice in your column for others who also
might want to send snappy responses to these idiots.
