An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account!
And if you had a broken disk,
It would hurt when you found out!
Compress was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for a while!
Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode!
Cut- you did with a pocket knife
Paste- you did with glue
A web was a spider's home
And a virus was the flu!
I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens they might wish they were dead for a second or two!

Consider ignoring junk emails that give you the option of clicking a link to be removed from the email lists.  

By doing so, you are confirming that they have reached a valid email address.  This may get you more junk email, especially if they sell the mailing lists to others.  

INSTEAD:  Delete the unwanted email and move on.  If you get tons of email from a specific group, it may be worth risking unsubribing.




How often do you check your mail box and you have more mail than any other type of mail.  If you are tired of receiving junk mail, you might want to contact the Stop Junk Mail Association.   Call the Stop Junk Mail Association at 1-800-827-5549. Good luck getting through, but it is worth the trouble.


Junk Email can be very annoying, also.  Most frequent users of the internet, do not open email from people they do not know anyway (they are afraid of receiving a virus).   Some junk email comes with unsubscribe instructions.  Weigh your options and consider the following.

If there is ever a box that says click this button to be deleted from a mailing list , especially if you did not subscribe to it in the first place, consider ignoring the request.  There are companies send out a ton of blanket emails to various email combinations and when they get a response, they know they have a valid email address.  You may wind up with lots more email by doing so.   Think about it carefully before you do this.
