Ironic computer softwareLocked
I always thought it was very ironic of Microsoft to put out a piece of software called Microsoft Works, when it rarely does – kind of like the old military intelligence joke. Anyway, yesterday I received an email from my brother.
The email was automatically generated by the new software program he’d installed and it sent an email about how great the new software was to everyone on his contacts list – he has two addresses for me, so I got it twice. He was NOT happy to learn that the new software had spammed his contact list. Oh, you want to know what the software was – –
The program was called SPAMfighter and the email went on about how it eliminates SPAM and asked everyone to add his email address to their white list and had a few paragraphs about how great SPAMfighter was. That email alone was enough to make me NOT want to use it, and then a check of their web site showed I couldn’t use it. It only works if you have Windows installed first, I don’t.
But I love it, an anti-spam program whose first action is to spam everyone you know. Oh, what irony!
