Nando Times: “According to the Direct Marketing Association’s guidelines, quoted by PC World, not responding to an unsolicited e-mail amounts to opting-in – a marketing strategy known as opting out.” Sigh, that is just plain wrong…

A friend of mine who lived in Japan for some years told me about some of the uninitentionally funny t-shirts found on the streets. My favorite, and perhaps the most classic is a baby-doll t-shirt that simply says “Lovery.” Dropping the ‘l’ from English words is very common in Japan. Based on this insight I did a search of Google for the word ‘lovery‘ and found some interesting sites, all in Japanese.

Bernard Shifman is an idiot. I remember reading Bernard Shifman is a Moron Spammer a few months ago and linking to it. I’ve just received Bernard’s resume in my inbox, sent to my PayPal email address which he could only have gotten from a spambot. What a moron.

Bernard clearly doesn’t grok the issue if spam. He is sending unsolicited emails with two file attachments. The Word resume is 71K and the HTML version of his resume is 118K. I know that sounds backwards, but upon viewing the source of his HTML resume you’ll see why. It was created with MS Office products, and has several hundreds lines of non-standard code. Is this really a person you want running your IT department or in charge of your computer networks? I didn’t think so.
