Embiggenment resisted

The March Consumer Reports has a page called “How to Win at E-Mail,” which struck me as odd: the only way to win, says the server looking over my shoulder, is not to play. Still, some of the statistics seemed valid, especially this one:

2 in 5 Americans have received email in the past year promising to enhance their libido or certain parts of their anatomy. (It annoys women more than men.)

I thought nothing annoyed women more than men; I know I’ve annoyed several.

But I understand why women object to this sort of thing, since the “certain part” most commonly specified is one they genitally generally lack.

    I don’t know… I used to get roughly as many emails promising to enlarge what I do have as I got promising to enlarge what I do not have but it’s been a long time since I got either kind. Most of my email spam these days is rather boring – offers to sell me property in Belize or credit card offers and stuff like that.
