E-Mail is dead

In my personal email today, I had 120 new messages in the Inbox. 113 of these were spam. 6 were legitimate emails from companies I do business with, but which I deleted without reading anyway. The only real message was from a friend, and it consisted entirely of the subject line, "'sup?".

Signal to noise ratio rapidly approaching zero.

You mean you deleted the email I sent you titled "Enlarge your penis now - cheap Viagra?"

I'll bet you didn't even look at the "Software - can this be legal?"

Actually, I anxiously await the advent of a pill to treat my chronic priapism. The endless Viagra spams are a cruel joke.
