    I'm getting an influx of spam today, and many of them weren't caught by Gmail's filters.

    What the **** have they come up with now?

    Anyone else?

    **** spammers.

    I have had 8 spam messages today (7 if you don't count the possible penis enlargement one that may be a viable option) and they were all caught by the spam filter.

    for some reason last month i started getting 2 "manhood enhancment" spams a day. no idea where that came from.... before that i had never gotten a spam (i've had the account since the very beginning of Gmail beta)

    the messages are sort of trailing off, some days i am only getting one of them now... i just want them to go away.

    at least i've never gotten one actually go into my inbox. that would SUCK!

    I have gotten about 30 SPAM messages on my gmail account today. Thankfully all were caught by the filter. It looked like it was the same 3 messages sent many times.

    I received 14 overnight last night and about 10 so far today. Both of which are about twice my normal rate. What's interesting is that they're almost all offers to "enhance my manhood." I usually get a nice variety of spam. ;)

    Anyway, only one has slipped past Gmail's spam filter and landed in my inbox.

    Um, I haven't been receiving mine.

    No unusual spam here.

    Nothing in my gmail account. My other account has a few a day but what's with all the "manhood" spam? I used to get a lot of those but lately I've been getting lots of spam telling me I won in some kind of "UK Lottery" or something. I've never been to the UK and didn't know they had a lottery.
