Google Spamming

Okay, if you found your name here via Google search and you know who I am, why not drop me an e-mail? (See the Correspondence address to the left?) Good. Here's a high resolution satellite image of what I looked like a year or two ago. Your mouse pointer can tell you the correct spelling of my name. Try it!

Glenn Weissinger Dave Marheine Kris Dugas Bob Bucci Mary Pat McKinley Mark Singel Dave Bradford Gary Wedemayer Glenn Emil Weissinger Robert Orlick Kristine Dugas Dan Gross Jeff Garland Jim Urban Dale Dolence Dean Dolence Jeff Gullickson Rick Olson Pat Furlan Don Kotek Frank Owen David Marheine Kristine Ann Joan Dugas Craig Liebel Dana Stonerook Rick Piel Les LaPhilliph Jerry Meyerhoff Lauren Bandler...

Man, this is hard work accessing these dusty memory banks. There are other names at the tip of my tongue that can't quite make it to my fingers right now. And some I don't feel confident enough about the correct spelling to put 'em in here... So, a general invitation to old friends from Walker School in West Allis, Linfield, Pilgrim Park, BCHS '73, UW Madison, Sellery Hall, Motorola, Eagle Monitor Systems, Square D, Oster, et cetera, etc... Let's Keep In Touch!
Spammity Spam Wonderful Spam

Spammers certainly seems to be adapting to anti-spam measures. I assume the "content" of this message (and probably the tracking of live addresses) was actually in the embedded graphics (not displayed). The text portion of the message, evidently intended to tempt me to accept free dog treats or something was as follows:

I was just thinking. I was just thinking. Suddenly, she wasn't there. Why do guys like you and me know what a duvet is?

Hi, I said to all the animals. I'll tell you what happened next. I want you to hit me as hard as you can. Are you getting pieces of this?

Just tell me your answer, even if it sucks. Why do guys like you and me know what a duvet is? He extended his hand by way of introduction. (I'd seen something really weird. :)

Are there a lot of these types of accidents? You can't go up to the unit. Nobody's allowed up there. It was cold and sweet. I can never describe the walk back to my truck. Suddenly, he disappeared.

This is even more amusing than the "names" of the senders in a day's spam harvest, which today includes Marty Thurman, rigoberto rayside, Fletcher Dean and Ethel.
