I fucking hate EVITE

Coincidence? I think not.

Just send me a fucking email, people. Neither the ugly clipart nor the influx of free spam make me MORE likely to attend your party. Christ.

I get evites all the time at my work account and have never gotten a drop of spam, so yes, I'd call it a coincidence.

Calm down cowboy.

You are lucky, then because EVERY time someone sends me an Evite, I get spammed for a week or so afterward until the Gmail filter figures out what to do about it.

I just don't understand why people love Evite so much. Why should I be happy about people giving my email addy to a 3rd party?

You are one seriously uptight dude. SPAM happens whether your email goes out to third parties or not. It's inevitable. INEVITABLE. Just get a filter and shut up.

There are worse problems.

And this is from a guy who had a spam-free email address for 8 years up until a few months ago.

Why are you being so mean to bionicroach, Mark? "Can't we all just get along?"

I had the same attitude towards evite. I actually called them and told them not to share my email address. I just stopped getting evites after that, which kind asucks because I always end up learning about parties the day before "So are you coming to my party?" "What party?" "I sent you the evite" "Oh, I don't get evites."

Anyway, have you read their privacy policy? They don't share email addresses.

I'm hard on anybody who gets their underpants in a twist over something petty. :)

And I get plenty of the same.

Yes, I've read their privacy policy, but the spam pattern sure is odd. Maybe they're spamming me as a penalty for not registering. :)

Whatever the reason, I seriously NEVER get spam at that address, specifically because I only use it to communicate with friends and relatives, never for online purchases or posting to forums, etc, etc.

Oh well. Point taken, Warner...it IS an OCD thing on my part to like seeing my spam folder empty, but it sure is nice when it works out.

My spam folder currently has 917 items in it. Know why I don't care? Because it's my SPAM folder.

Feh you think that's spam?

Ecstatic I'd be if spam that small I had. Yeesh.

He has a 1:1 spam:mail ratio, I could understand why he's upset. And with an attitude like that, I can understand why he doesn't get much email.

I think we need a Yiddish day, or at least one day a week we can all pretend to be Jewish, in a small tailors sort of way.

Of course some might choose to be an Arab in the way of one selling small brass ornaments or carpets.

Or perhaps just a Be an Ethnic Minority Day (so long as its not your own).

I think he was referring to the slightly Yiddish tone of "Ecstatic I'd be if spam that small I had. Yeesh." already. Oy, vey, I'm all verklempt!

Evite is some kind of electron spread, right?
