: eToys is dead. Good thing I didn't go to work there.

: From a spam mail:

  FOR ONLY $249
        **Over Night International Shipping Included**

So I shell out my $249 and I get a fifteen-foot stack of books full of email addresses in small type delivered to my door. I can then OCR the books into my spam automailer over the course of several years and then spam everyone on the list. And what better to sell them than my electronic version of the list their name is on, which I can sell multiple times for much less than $249?

: Oh, I didn't read the spam closely enough. They send it on a CD. I guess I just assumed that if they were going to be stupid about it they would go all the way.
