True Story

I obviously knew spammers were stupid, but one today was especially stupid: he sent the spam with hundreds of addresses openly showing in the “To” line.
And this is why spam actually works: so far, 85 of the recipients were obliviots enough to “Reply All” to say something or another.
And now you know the difference between “stupid” and “obliviot”.

People should have to pass a test to be allowed to have a “Reply All” function on their email.
