871

The spam fest is over. I hit 871 emails this evening when gmail started removing the oldest from my spam box.

The only hassle in the whole deal was deleting them all. gmail would only let me delete 50 at a time until i made a quick change to my settings. Then I could delete 100 of the suckers with a couple of clicks.

Less than a minute and a month's worth of spam was gone like the dawn.

Is this going to be the new thing? Saving it all and deleting it all at once? It could be entertaining. I'm sure you can hit 1000 mark some month... maybe around the holidays?

ahh, man, I'm not gonna beat you. I've got two days left and am only up to 682...

Yeah, deleting is a real pain. But in gmail you can go into "settings" and set it at 100 conversations per page, that way you'll only have to hit select all and delete forever 9 times.. Or you could just let them be deleted each day by the program... What fun!!!

dang, it's a month and I'm only up to 736...

Now for the real dilemma: To delete them all myself, or to let gmail do the dirty work automatically.
