Aw Crap -- Who Ordered More Crap?


I guess I let it go too long again. Back on 24 October 2009 I wrote about shoveling through 72 pages of spam on my WMU mail account. That was two weeks ago.

So today I checked the Pure Spam trap and found... 67 pages of spam. And again, I really have to wade through them all to make sure I don't miss something important.


Oh crap I just marked twenty messages and hit the wrong button. The DELIVER MESSAGES button comes first -- and the DELETE MESSAGES comes second. Who the hell came up with this system? In a spam control system, your first choice is to send the messages on? In what alternate universe do these programmers live? And while I'm pissed, what's up with not having an UNDO or CANCEL button?

Second, while they have a button to look over the list of messages you just deleted, there isn't one for the delivery queue. And the 20 messages I have to go and delete in my mail account aren't there yet. They're just waiting for me to finish the session and I log out, I imagine. So rather than deal with my mistake and their bad programming now, I have to remember doing it later. Good, clever, wonderful. Will somebody get a clue-by-four and beat the crap out of the Pure Spam programmers for me?


What's the point of having an unhelpful, unuseful and unreasonable spam screening system -- lately a WHOLE lot of spam has been reaching my WMU account, so despite 67 pages of spam, it should've been 72+ pages.

Spammers? Bastards.

Pure Spam? Epic Fail Bastards.

It all sucks, dammit.
