Like everyone else out in the virtual world, I am constantly inundated with junk email trying to get me to buy everything from bail bonds to viagra. Lately I've been getting about 10 emails a day offering cheap Cialis. Seems everytime I open my email I see something on the subject line promising that if I use their product, my "member will get rock hard and stay that way for hours!". I've gotten ads for pretty much every kind of porn you can imagine, from celebrities to animals. By now, I've learned to just delete them and have pretty much accepted that as long as there is email, I will always receive such crap.
But this is getting out of control.
This morning, upon opening my Gmail account, I was greeted with an email from some company called ZTX Entertainment or some generic name like that. With Gmail, you can see most of the first sentence in the email under the subject line, so imagine my shock when I glanced at it and saw what it said:
RAPE PHOTOS $29.95! RAPE, VIOLENT SEXUAL ACTS, (Here's where it got cut off)
Are there really people out there that are selling - and BUYING - this stuff?! Now, I've been around the world, have seen my share of sleaze, and am certainly not naive, but...I'm at a loss. Imagine your kids receiving this email. Sometimes I weep for the future.
