Hi. Any idea why I am getting mail from vendors who:1. Think I like wine when I don't touch a drop? 2. Think I am Fundamentalist Protestant when I'm not? 3. Send me objectionable "dirty" mail? 4. Want to consider me a home owner when I don't own a home?
Because it is cheaper for them to spam every address they can find rather than keep records on who might actually be interested in their garbage and send it only to them. If only 1 person in 10,000 who gets a spam message replies, sending the message has paid for itself several times over.
I always knew that I would see the first man on the Moon.
I never dreamed that I would see the last.
