    The Fastest Delete Finger In the Midwest
    by Terri Seymour

    2002 Terri Seymour

    There are hundreds of thousands of people who are
    trying to make an honest living on the Internet these
    days. The Internet is a great opportunity for starting
    your own business. There is not a lot of start-up
    cost, you can reach the whole world from a small corner
    of your own house, and the income can be exceptional.

    However, a lot of us publishers and Internet marketers
    are running into a serious problem.

    Before I start talking about it, I want to ask you all
    a question - How many of you get junk snail mail?
    Everyone, right? Now, how many of you call the cops
    when you get it? None, right? Of course not because
    that would be ridiculous!

    We simply throw it in the trash and forget about it.
    Very easy, right?

    What I don't understand is why it is not as simple as
    that with your email. We have all received junk email,
    also known as sp~m. Just junk mail of the Internet,
    right? So why do so many people make such a big
    deal about it??? I know that reputable publishers and
    marketers have been reported to "sp~m cops" and
    were caused serious problems because of it. And why?
    Not because they have done anything wrong, but
    because a subscriber forgot they subscribed to the
    ezine or they forgot they requested information or some
    other foolish reason.

    Now we have to deal with a thing called "sp~m filters"!
    Not only do these "filters" keep legitimate ezines,
    emails, reports, etc. from going through, but the amount
    of sp~m has only increased! These "filters" are also
    causing many problems for publishers and subscribers

    I have also had an experience of being reported for
    sp~m. Someone requested one of my articles by
    autoresponder. Well, they received the article and then
    a couple of days later a follow-up thank you note.
    Apparently this thank you note pi**ed them off because
    they reported me to my ISP. I then received a phone
    call from my ISP telling me my email account was going
    to be cancelled immediately! Well, it took me awhile,
    but I finally was able to explain that the person who
    received that email had to have requested my article
    by autoresponder. There was no other way he could
    have gotten that message.

    So, I was able to save my account, but I know of
    several people who didn't get off so easy.

    I rarely gripe about anything like this because I know
    a lot of computer problems are out of our control, but
    this is a problem caused by people, not machines!

    This is really getting out of I have come
    up with a very simple yet effective idea for getting
    rid of sp~m! Are you ready for this???

    Ok, first you click on the sp~m message in your inbox.
    Make the determination ( be sure now) that it is,
    indeed, sp~m. Then you stick up your index or other
    finger if you prefer ( be nice now) ;-) and push the
    magic button marked D-E-L-E-T-E. This will make the
    sp~m magically disappear!

    I have used this method of sp~m destruction since
    starting on the Internet and have found it to be most
    effective. I receive hundreds of sp~m messages a
    day, but always manage to make each and every one
    disappear forever!

    I also have some tips for people who do not want to
    receive any so-called sp~m:

    1. Do Not subscribe to any newsletters!
    2. Do Not sign-up for special offers!
    3. Do Not request any information via autoresponder!
    4. Do Not send any email to anyone at anytime!
    5. Do Not use your email for any reason whatsoever!

    I assure you if you follow all these tips you will never
    receive any sp~m!

    I know I have been a little ridiculous in making my
    point, but that just is my point. All this hullabaloo
    about sp~m is ridiculous. It is simply junk mail and
    can be deleted without any trouble, hassle or problems!

    Try it a few times and you will soon be like me - I have
    the fastest delete finger in the Midwest!! Anyone care
    to challenge me?? ;-)

    Wishing you a wonderfully warm and joyous Christmas!
