A personal message that I received recently together with my reply.
. I'm not sure what this guy was getting at but I hope I managed to answer his question.

Often I an asked why I an a muslim. For those of you who are/were genuinely interested, please do not be offended. For those of you who merely wished to attack my freedom of thought and my freedom of religion, well it's my choice, be offended or not as you please because frankly, I don't give a damn!

Banks these days think they rule the World!
(well, they do, but they could at least pretend to give a damn right?)
So all South African banks require their customers to install some crappy third party software in order to read emailed statements. This software is not part of any web standard, is not installed by default in any Operating System and comes without source code.

Why, how thoughtful to send me an unsolicited antivirus solution!
Hmmm! Maybe I should forward this to the FICA people
Just the two most interesting examples from the spam I've received recently!

This is a screenshot from the website that a certain spammer has been trying to get us to go to.
Yes, that's in lynx browser since you never know what's on the other end of spam.

123video gaat op zeer korte termijn veranderen en zal uitsluitend nog video's uit de categorieën 'Celebs & Babes' en 'XXX - Erotiek & Sex' vertonen. Alle overige categorieën en de daarbij behorende video’s zullen definitief worden verwijderd.
De reden voor deze wijziging is enerzijds het potentiële risico dat 123video loopt ten aanzien van de inhoud van de andere categorieën en anderzijds de hoge kosten in verband met het in stand houden van deze categorieën.
Met vriendelijke groet,
I joined up here ages ago to see a video. Now they're eliminating all the videos I would actually be interested in!
I'd completely forgotten they even existed. (or why I joined in the first place for that matter)
Anyway, for those who can't read Dutch, the email basically states that they are soon going to remove all categories except for 'Celebs & Babes' and 'XXX - Erotiek & Sex' categories.
This, they claim is because of the 'high cost' and expenses that comes from maintaining the other categories!
While the email does not say specifically what these costs are, I get the impression that it's a case of legal fees relating to copyright issues!
Anyway, it doesn't affect me much since I've not been to that site for years now!

Every now and then I come across something that just boggles the mind! Why on earth would you put out an advertisement that normal people cannot read?
I hv an acer aspire 1 netbook wth charger bt t nids a madaboard replacd an a sony ericson mini xperia e10i no acesories d scrn s crgckd bt t wrks fyn t jst nid a new b3 coz d 1 t hs s dead i want R1000 4 both m in kzn dbn south coast umzinto
I can deduce some of what is intended in this classified advert from Junkmail
but I'm damned if I can interpret the whole of it. This kind if inscrutable cryptogram has become the norm in South Africa, which suggests that it must be accepted in educational institutions and in the workplace. However, if that is true, then it seems that we no longer use anything even remotely resembling English in South Africa.
If I had used a cryptogram like this in school, I would have been given a big fat 0% for any work I turned in. And anyone who uses this type of text for something like a classified ad is almost certainly also using it for work and/or school.
I get the nasty feeling that our newspapers and periodicals will soon be typed in this manner, rendering them quite unreadable to those of us who were educated before 1994.

Islamic months start with the visual sighting of the new moon. Without the visual sighting of the new moon on the night following the 29th day, the month will continue for one more day. (i.e. thirty days)

Having just discovered that this song from childhood was originally sung in German
, I wondered about the original lyrics. The English lyrics barely made much sense and I could never figure out why the balloons were specifically red!
Of, course, since I don't speak German, I decided to use Google. In The hopes of getting a less distorted translation, I felt that it would make sense to translate into Afrikaans. As I am reasonably fluent in Afrikaans, and since German an Afrikaans have almost identical grammar, I expected a near perfect rendering of German to Afrikaans.
I was wrong! Google clearly needs to work on their translation algorithm when translating lyrics!
Here is my translation, which is a much better version than Google's!

Gmail warns me that similar messages have been used for identity theft!
Not that I needed the warning. After all, what would Google need Correctional Officers for?
I'm tempted to bait this one just for the fun of it!

Direct To Video means low budget, minimal plot and no real storyline. I get that, I really do, but does it need to be as bad as this?

As regular readers already know, I like to publish the spam fraud that I receive.
I do this in the hope that it will prevent some people from becoming victims, but also for the laugh value.
