You've got mail! - Viagra for 43 percent off! "WTF!"

I'm sure that most of my viewers have at least one email account, so you're probably familiar with viagra or (insert meds) for "growing your member" or just plain weird stuff that comes in your Inbox during the day. For the most part now, email services have advanced to the point of sending all that fun stuff to your junk folder, but I still remember when that garbage was hitting hard and there wasn't much that could be done about it. I still remember when I had to manually turn on the spam filter for my yahoo account, it was back when one only had around 25MB of space or so for your inbox. Anyone else remember those days?

I eventually got an invite to Gmail back in late 2004, and absolutely loved it. It automatically filtered out the crappy spam emails!  It was a nice change of pace using that since I've been using yahoo mail 3 years prior to that coming out. Looking back, I don't know how I could have gone without those ever-so-useful spamfilters that both email services use now.
