About 80% of my spam falls into 4 categories.
- Drugs. Makes sense, they spend alot of money on marketing and are complete scumbags.
- Diploma. This is mostly ONLINE diplomas, which I assume are just scams. More scumbags.
- Russian. Sometimes I translate the email and see they are actually lawyers in Moscow. Why would I want this? What are they thinking? Why can’t I block ALL foreign language emails?
- Watches. Really? Why are there so many emails for watches? Not shoes or necklaces. Watches. Am I missing something?
If I could define a spam filter it would be:
- If something is set to spam, then check:
- If it’s not in english, delete it
- If it contains the word Viagra or Cialis or (other drug names), delete it
- If it contains the word Diploma, delete it
- If it contains the word watch, delete it
This would chop my spam my a massive amount.
