Why Spam?

You know I don't understand why people do it. I just don't. After I buy something from somewhere I start getting mail from the same retailer every other day. WHY? I already BOUGHT from you? Makes me NOT want to buy again. Seriously. Or when I sign up to a mailing list and I start getting two or three emails a day. WHY? oh WHY? oh WHY? I JUST SIGNED ON. Your battle is DONE. Now try to keep me but there is now way no how now with that stupid biz practice.

I run a couple of forums and I notice a lot of biz owner come on over just to spam. It looks bad. Really bad. I find it so annoying that I am avoiding the biz owners establishment in protest of their methods. I don't understand the logic of spamming. I know there is a group of people the ones responsible for nearly 70% off all spam that are actually scams. That I get since they are not trying to build any form of relationship with you other than rip you off and throw you to the side.

HOWEVER, if you are a reputable small biz why do as the crooks do? The post or emails aren't even relevant to my life either.

I just spent sometime monitoring the part of the forums that are open to the public as a guest and deleting all spam related to porn and meds. Maybe thats why am ticked off.

Is it so hard NOT to SPAM?

I know a woman spammer. She calls it "networking." Apparently for every thousand ticked off people, there's 2 or 3 customers (or some absurd ratio like that). So apparently it's worth it for them. Ick.
