Junk Mail - What Did You Get Today?

Wed Jun 11, 2003 9:27 pm

Guys,

Moving to my new place I am amaaazzzzzzed at the amount of junk mail I get, most of it from local restaurants. For example:

1. *Hot Salsa* Mexican Kitchen
2. Newtown Medical Centre
3. *Hot Spicey* Thai and Noodle place.
4. Ladda's "The Thai Take away"
5. *Thai Riffic* Newtown
6. *Manolya* Turkish Pizza & Sweets
7. *Pho Saigon* Vietnamese
8. *Pho Saigon* Vegetarian Restaurant.
9. *Alberto's* Pizzeria
10. *The NZ Fish and Chip Cafe*
11. *Korea the BBQ* BBQ Korean restaurant
12. *Pub Meals* at the Union Hotel

Arrived today.

How much junk mail do you get?

I think he meant junk snail mail. Otherwise... the only thing that I have received so far today was an invitation to see "Candace's New Webcam." Big grin

Junk snail mail: None. The "no advertisement" sticker does its job very well.
Junk E-Mail: Adidas shoes (though I fear I once signed up for it), and "Julia Sprengler" who asked me if I remember last night. Otherwise the www.gmx.net spam-filter does a very good job.

A few month ago I changed my eMail address and told the new one only a few people, since that I didn`t receive a single junk mail.

I received a handwritten receipt from Keyworld Ltd after having paid by debit card online. Asking why I call that junk? It's one more paper to cope with!

How is Turkish pizza different from American or Italian pizza?

Once a week, every mail box in Vancouver gets coupons from local businesses. Since I moved two weeks ago, I have not seen this. Other than that, just the electric bill and the phone bill. From my 3 e-mail addresses, I have deleted a total of 300 junk e-mails. The most intriguing one: Kendra talked to Sally last night after she left here. So close, yet so far away.....

GO CANUCKS!!
You bet I'm pumped!!! I just had a green tea!!!

Guys,

I was talking about paper mail.

The entrance to our appartment block lobby is full of paper mail - even though the building cleaners attempt to clear it out. It seems as soon as they do someone else shoves more home delivery menu's, department store catalogs and *houses for sale* fliers in our letter boxes.

Ooooeerrrsss..

Turkish Pizza or Pide (I think) is a lot different than your standard Italian stuff.

Cheers,

mb

I, like BNE, live out in the sticks. I get a weekly advert presented as a "newspaper" from the yuppy housing development down the mountain (damn Californians) and the ubiquitous grocer ads. Total 3 more additions to the dump per week.

>>>A few month ago I changed my eMail address and told the new one only a few people, since that I didn`t receive a single junk mail.

Ah, I think I´ll sign you up at a few porn websites, Patrick  Laugh out loud

>>>"Julia Sprengler" who asked me if I remember last night.

So, do you? Big grin (I always wonder, how dumb must these people be, do they assume I´ll take this Julia for real???)

As for me, I don´t remember the particular ones, because I deleted them this morning, but generally speaking it´s
- penis enlargements
- porn
- fake diplomae
- Nigeria scam
- printer toner
- credit cards without background check
- how to make a fortune on eBay

CPH-R: I get this a lot, some crazy people have fallen for it.. even though the six people who created it have been arrested, it's still flying around a lot.

My other junk mail is usually penis enlargers & porn.  Sad

I always mail the pre-paid envelopes (that come with credit card offers etc) back to them empty. This increases their costs of sending junk mail.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

For junk snail mail it's mostly local restaurants and businesses.
For junk e-mail, I must be a lucky man because everybody is emailing me asking if I remember last night  Big grin. I get all sorts of free this and that if you do this etc.
