Mr Gates loses the battle

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 12 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Two years ago today, Bill Gates promised he would rid the email world of spam within two years.  18 emails I’ve received today says he’s failed.  Unless, of course, “teen girls get anally violated” and “Very sad German statistics say in average” don’t count as spam, for some reason.  Luckily, I have Reg to back me up on this one.  He’s failed miserably.  Let’s all point and laugh.  (via)
