What's With All the Asian Email Spam???

Postby Strong Eagle » Thu, 21 Feb 2013 1:19 am

It's bad enough that I get the spam for penis extenders and get rich quick schemes, along with Nigerian 419 schemes, but what the hell... all sorts of supposedly legitimate businesses have been spamming me with their advertising.

Property sales, restaurants, bars, and clothing stores are all sending me their crap.

At least European and US businesses seem to know that spamming is a bad thing... what is with these buttheads?

As we all know, Asians have a very poor understanding of personal space. Sending you unsolicited email without you having ticked a checkbox in some online form is fair game to most.
