Time to empty out the scam e-mail box

But first, let me hit the playoffs. 

St. Pete got an eye-opener Sunday, giving up 3 in the second period to give the Polar Bears a 3-1 win.  But St. Pete wasn't real happy about it, and it showed Monday- they outshot the PBs 48-28 and six different players scored in a 6-1 romp that put the series at 3-1 and left the Polar Bears on the brink of elimination.

Two other teams slipped over the brink.  Red Army posted 3-1 and 2-1 wins over the Lions to move on to round two with a 4 games to none sweep.  And Jakub Petruzalek scored in each game as Dynamo posted 4-2 and 3-2 wins over the Sky-Blues to knock them out.

That leaves Lokomotiv and the Steelers in the west, and neither game was good news.  Nikita Alexeyev scored with 33 seconds left in the game to give the Steelers a 3-2 win on Sunday, with Kronwall and Plotnikov scoring for us.  And Monday, we played the longest game in KHL history- 118 minutes and 48 seconds- or a minute-12 from two complete games- Only to have Denis Kazionov blast a drop pass from the point past Curtis Sanford- the 83rd shot Sanford faced- to give the Steelers a 3-2 win and a 3-1 series lead.  The Steeler goalie stopped 48 of 50 shots.

Curtis Sanford collapses after the final shot loses the game.
The east conference took Sunday off and played today.  League leading scorer Sergei Mozyakin scored the first goal for the Metallurgists against SYU- and SYU scored all the rest in a 4-1 win.  Despite a furious third period rally, the only goal was a short-hander for SYU  who take a 2-1 series lead.

The Meteor guys scored on the power play, equal, and shorthanded to beat the Kazakh Snow Leopards 3-1 in game three for their first win.

Kristian Kudroc scored twice to give the Siberians a 4-1 win over Vanguard and a 2-1 series lead.

The Russian Snow Leopards hung on for a 2-1 win over the Petrochemists- despite giving up a goal inside the last minute of the game.  The cats take a 3-0 series lead.

The east teams play again Tuesday, and the two remaining west series play on Thursday.


Okay, time to dip in the ol' mail bag and see what kind of stupidity is going on.

Momto8blog has gotten a lot of spam play on her post "Opportunity Knocks".  One of them I saved because it got a little sidetracked...

When you go to a CPA electronic network possible if I'm working here and scarcely anyone knows me?" merely once, I'd like to foot up the
earphone and not have to get over the issue if
your heritage seems overwhelmingly diverse, as mine did to me.
lucid dreaming is seemly aware of Consciousness: Lucid draming wakes up.
I don't ask that this for lucid dreaming, out of dead body experiences, and stellar acoustic projection.

Courtesy of "Definition lucid dreaming".  If, by lucid dreaming, they mean they walk around half asleep all day, I think I understand.

One enterprising scammer must have read one of my previous posts on the subject- but not very carefully:

Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have developed some nice
procedures and we are looking to exchange techniques
with others, why not shoot me an email if interested.
Take a look at my website ... Raspberry Ketone Diet

See there's the problem!  A raspberry ketone diet (whatever that is) prevents spam!  Spread the word!

Monkey Butt had one the other day that was just packed with useless information.  Here's a swatch of an example:

I think the best piece of advice I can give is to own
your cell phone experience. Be a good and knowledgable customer.
Bring your own equipment. Make the most of any bonus programs your provider offers.
Get intimate with their online account management tools.

But this is just the beginning of a 20 LINE blathering that included such bon mots as:

The good sixties/bad sixties analysis is fraught with historical omissions...

At their core is retreat from a systemic critique of
the US economic and political arrangement...

...declaring out-of-bounds by definition any project that takes seriously the possibility of building a strong radical movement anchored in anti-racism and solidarity with the Third World...

The app is that much more savvy about travel times, as well -- the forward-thinking can at last plan trips days in advance...

And after a discussion on how Nokia is slowly but surely gaining ground on Google, it ends with the link "Cheapest Toronto phone numbers."  If you think that's bizzarre, you shoulda read the whole thing.

Along with the usual substance abuse for adults wearing diapers stuff I get on the caps blog (BTW a new post on there Sunday!),  I got one that started with:

It іs actually a сomplex disеase and a chronіc bгain disorder...

and ends with:

But ωhat is truly dіѕheartening іѕ that 12.
12 what?  Your guess is as good as mine- like I said, that's where it ended.  Save for the link-, which is described as "a tool for analyzing and optimizing websites" and apparently makes its owner 22¢ a day.

Another cap blog attacker was much more succinct:

Hello. And Bye. Thank you very much.
Not even so much as a link with it.

In the meantime, another scammer tumbled onto my terrible secret:

When you rеally feel strеssed if you wake up within the morning
аnd you cannоt execute nicely at pеrfοrm, this might an indication thаt snοгing
іs ruining youг life. Sooner or later, you may suffer frοm othеr
health сonditionѕ. Τo treat this irritable disoгԁer, yοu will need to usе а quit snoring spray
and this mіght bе purchased from your regional ԁrugѕtoгe.

Prioг to sleeping, spray it intо thе
bacκ throat tο remove snοring.
Ask yοur partneг οr a lоved οnes
member to monitor in caѕe you snored throughout the night.

Well, at least I know now.  I wondered why I wasn't doing very good at perform.

Grumpy Old Ken got one the other day that concluded thusly:

Can we switch numbers and Christy Brinkly's husband, Here are 10 Key Signs You May Be Online dating a Married Man1.
My questions are, which of them has Christie Brinkley's husband, and what do they want to swap him in exchange for?

And other than several more sendings of the "Capt. DJ Skelton- for your perusal" e-mail, and another lovely letter in French from Mme. Tiffany DuPont, I have one more to thro on the fire today.  It was supposedly sent by Mr. Mike Sunshine (spiffy name), but was signed by Maimuna S. Aliyu, and apparently wasn't sure whether it was going to strangers or family:

Dear Sir/Ma,

And I guess will end this up with the dvd left at our door, a double feature- Heaven Is So Real/23 Minutes In Hell, from one Choo Thomas.  Now you can read the amusing wiki here,  but basically, she claims Jesus came one Sunday to the church she attended in Tacoma, and took her to heaven for a visit- not once but several times.  And I have some bad news for Laurie:

She states that the food of heaven is fish*, and recounts a time when she and Jesus went fishing in heaven. On another trip to heaven she played with the fish**. She often talks about Jesus and her going for boat rides in Heaven with Jesus rowing the boat.
*Laurie doesn't like fish.
** If this gets out to our children, that Jesus approves of playing with our food...

Okay, that's it, I need to get some dinner.  Hope you enjoyed!


  1. :)

    I got one the other day on an older post about my ex's family that was advertising a therapist. Go figure. :)

    1. I guess sometimes they are topic-appropriate...

  2. CWM:
    Good God, those scam emails are funnier than you-know-what.
    I got spammers that wanmt me to partake in CASINOS...or STOCKS...(from Russia no less).

    Didn't know that Russkies (from Argentina where the IP tracked back to...again, no less) would be so willing to help in Indiana!!!

    Suffice it to say, the email addy gets a lot of MY business.

    Email filters never seem to work.
    Ditto for SPAM filters.
    (and that's why yahell mail is crap-for-free)

    Time to shop around, I guess.

    Stay safe up there.

    1. On the other hand, they are cheap entertainment.

  3. I don't know about blocking SPAM, but I'll bet a raspberry ketone diet would make you poop red.

    1. Not taking the chance, little seeds might aggravate my IBS.

  4. We started getting as many as 20 spam comments a day, so we had to just block anonymous comments. Our latest ones were about Indian text books, because anyone who reads our novels would definitely appreciate a text book from India!

    1. And who wouldn't enjoy the Sanskrit version of How To Treat A Woman With Respect?
