Vogon spam is even worse than the poetry

If you read my previous blogs about P2P/inbox-mediaone/traclickmedia spam offering the currently-defunct Limewire (though some sort of replacement has been promised), you'll be glad to know that not only have they caught up with the latest news, but are now offering an alternative that is cleaner, faster, friendlier and safer. Yeah, right…

In fact, looking through the junk folder on that account before I spread my wings and fly to a conference, I notice also that they're also offering Open Office on an almost daily basis. Best of all, though, they're offering Google Earth, your protection against alien invasion.

I promise you I'm not making this up…

    At least the purveyors of this fantastic offer aren't trying to knock your house down to make way for a bypass. On second thought, I guess what they're doing could be worse.

    Now where did I put my towel?
