    I have various spamguards so most of it is filtered out, but some slip through. In no particular order.

    Hot 'buy now!' stockmarket tips
    So-called "Nigerian 419" scam letters
    Debt relief/Loan consolidation
    Crap from Amazon.com
    Crap from A Certain Former GR Member
    Cheap pharmaceuticals/beauty products
    "You've Won A Fabulous Holiday/Cruise" announcements
    Some sex/dating stuff but not much
    I've never liked lesbianism - it leaves a bad taste in my mouth
    Dame Edna Everage

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Mostly stock market tips, scam letters, assorted pharmaceuticals and sex stuff. I don't get much any more compared to a year or so ago.

    Hot stocks, logo designs, viagra, cialis, hot young chicks, buy a degree, internet design, porn, porn, porn.

    Found out my father was using my email address to surf the internet for porn. Admitted that he used my email address because he didn't want any crap showing up on his end.

    Thanks Dad. The gift that keeps on giving.

    Tons and tons of Erectile dysfunction spam. It is starting to make me nervous and I am left wondering if my performance with a former lover was not as up to par as I thought.

    A few Rolex offers, pharmaceuticals sold by people who can't spell, stock 'tips', a surprising number of pseudo-banks phishing but mostly penis enlargement offers and erectile disfunction ads. Every day I get at least one ad that makes me laugh. These must all must be written by the same guy and his tenuous grasp of English can sometimes result in unintended humour. I never got spam until I foolishly signed up for a contest at canoe.ca. Bastards.

    I get all kinds of weird stuff but my favorite, which I've been getting every day for the past five or six years is always titled: 'Hot girls and wild horses'. Cracks me up every time. What an image, eh?

    I was picturing something else but then I have a rather active imagination...

    I get the 'grow a bigger penis' ones often as well...I wonder what would happen if I took them. Would my clitoris go all freaky like Chyna's did?

    Usually investment stuff (ya I'm gonna invest with you, with your bogus e-mail address). And enlarge your penis/viagra ads. I don't have a penis thanks.
    Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.
