of course i did...which is my point...what difference does it make if it's chock full of spam? you yourself said you don't use it, so what are you bitching about? the fact that an email address you don't use receives spam?

I'm going to have to ask you to leave now. You're obviously trying so hard to troll, that you're missing key points in 1)what I typed, and 2) the meaning of my post. In the future, please try to use common sense. Yes, I know it's chit chat...but it's only making it worse when you try to DEFEND your nonsensical posts.

Good day.

ummm...but you said you didn't send any email out from it, nor did you give the email out to anyone

so you had forwarding set up on an account you weren't using and no reason to expect email from

and then you bitch when it receives spam?

you need a new job if you're so bored at work that you make retarded threads like this

yes, I did say that I don't send email from it, nor do I give the email out to anyone.
I see that you made it that far into the message.

Yes, I did have forwarding set up. NCSU actually does send information through there on alumni events, university news, etc. Those are the emails that I was expecting.


I'm not bitching. I'm warning people.


I am off of work now, thanks. I worked mostly 8-5 this week (except for one day). I do about 40 hours during the summer, and my dept. gets charged overhead if I do more. So I went in today around 8, worked till around noon, left, came home, worked another hour, then ran some errands. But thank you for being concerned about my activities during the day...especially my job.

Now as I said, you have been excused from this thread. I would thank you not to post again, as you are making a fool out of yourself. I hate seeing you like this man, I really do.

So please...take those rolling eyes, and bounce your bitch ass out of here. Your comments are not needed, warranted, and you continue to embarrass yourself. This is the last that I will speak on this subject.

i'm betting that's not true at all

the simple fact is that if anyone else had made this thread, people would be responding with comments similar to mine, because only a dumbass would bitch about getting spam on an email account...i didn't THINK you were a dumbass, but apparently you were too stupid to realize that ncsu email accounts, alumni or not, get horrible amounts of spam (or were you the one student who never received spam while at ncsu?)

i commend you for commanding enough respect that you can post bullshit like this in chit chat and people defend your stupidity...i really do...but just because they respect you and fail to mention how retarded your thread is doesn't mean i do...you don't know me and i don't know you, and i'll call out a stupid thread when it's posted

wow, quagmire02, wow.

this almost erodes for me any respect i have of you and your valuable opinion on subject matters. generally i assume that when you come into a thread and make a point and continue to defend yourself in despite of what is said that it is because you honestly do have a concept regarding the material being discussed and that you're speaking for the purpose of educating those around; however, now i can see that, regardless if you're right or wrong in an instance, you're really only speaking to see what you can put up on the screen and then sit back smugly. this makes you as bad as any troll.

seriously.



./rant

that being said.

I also have this alumni email address, and i also don't use it nor do i send anything out from it and, yes, regrettably it has caused my spam filter to get filled daily. while it doesn't bother me because its not hard to erase whats located in a spam filter the principle of the issue is really what gets to me and takes me off kilter.

quagmire02 you have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found trolling.

many years ago when i had the opportunity to activate my alumni email address, i heard some stories about some universities, including NC State, selling all their email addresses to marketing companies...fuck that shit

its one thing if you sign up for stuff and forget to uncheck the "May our partners send you special information" or whatever...but without doing anything with the email address, and still getting tons of spam...thats bullshit

no kidding. there's that time period after you graduate that your unity address is still active. right after I graduated from NCSU, the spam started rolling in. I mean, during 4 years at NCSU, I think I got maybe 5 unsolicited messages.

But as soon as I graduated, BAM. 2-5 spam emails a day.

there's no other reason that this would happen other than NCSU selling those addresses.
as that relates to the alumni address, I have NEVER given that out to anyone. Hell, I couldn't even really tell you what the address is off the top of my head.

shady shit

i gotta be honest with you...i don't quite derive my sense of self-worth from tww, so i'm really okay with it...if i go make a thread right now about how i get spam in my gmail account, i'd be ridiculed and called a troll

the problem is that my point would be JUST as valid as dumbass EMCE's: a FREE email address that you CHOOSE to sign up for catches SPAM...i'm really curious as to what he THOUGHT would happen...magically it would be completely immune to the same fucking thing that plagues EVERY OTHER EMAIL SERVICE ON THE PLANET? y'all really should consider take your lips from his ass and realize that this was a completely pointless thread - he told you what any 12 year old who has been on teh intarweb for 10 minutes could have told you - email addresses get spam

or were you all truly and genuinely taught something you didn't know in the original post? perhaps you never checked your ncsu address while there, don't have any other email addresses, and thought the alumni bounce would be completely spam free? really?

actually, you idiot, there are a NUMBER of reasons this would happen...you don't really understand the internet, do you?

you're not this thick headed and myopic so stop pretending as if you are. you, as anyone else can plainly see, realize that the point of his thread was to let you know how much spam you'd receive and inform you of what exactly you'd be getting into. when i signed up for mine i suspected that i might get some spam but no where near to the level that i did in fact receive. hes presenting the evidence as he sees fit and affording the opportunity to those you may otherwise sign up for an email address not to. its not a hard subject to grasp and from the posts of yours i've read before its clear that you understand it. this isn't an issue of him vs. you. hell, i rep you or agree with you in most threads you're in because, in general, you have good and valid points, but not this time. you'll be hard pressed to find a thread where i've done any such thing for EMCE. You can either own up and say you jumped the gun, were trolling, or were otherwise plain wrong in your assertions but not doing one of those things only shows what type of person you are and damages part of your credibility for your posts as well as provides a glimpse into people about what type of petty person you actually are. you may think that you're actions or the arguments you compose prove how smart you are, but they don't. The only thing they show is from where you get your jollies and what type of sad individual you are is a direct reflection of that. get over yourself, really- the rest of us have.

agreed! EMCE knows jack shit about what he's talking about, so he says that "there's no other reason that this would happen other than NCSU selling those addresses"...which is ignorance at best, and stupidity at worst

he obviously doesn't know about ident daemons or the fact that some mailing lists (ncsu's, for example) will respond with the list of members when they're flagged to do so or something obvious like spy/malware...and that's only a few ways, all of which are common and realistic

but hey, no way an email address could get SPAM any other way but by someone SELLING the email address! gah, you people are so dumb

oh, really? those are my only options? i'll do it when EMCE admits that the bullshit about THE ONLY WAY you could get spam through an ncsu account is if they SOLD it...he's being intentionally ignorant, and you all lap up his blather for a reason i can't quite determine...he's flat-out wrong in his assumptions, but you all have to stick your fingers a bit farther up his asshole to see him smile...i'm not quite sure what you're getting out of it

Just so everyone knows NC State doesn't sell email addresses to anyone. The reason that people get spam when they get an alumni forwarding address and they didn't when they had their student address is simple.

The university filters out the majority of the spam emails that come in when you are a student. For the forwarding address, there is no middle man. So any spam that comes to the address will come on to your gmail account or whatever email you are using.
