For some reason, my Yahoo! inbox has been bombarded with spam over the last few days. Apparently, I've won a lot of free Dell laptops that I didn't even know I was in the running for. There are also a lot of schools that would like me to apply to their nursing, criminal justice, and massage schools. I didn't realize I had such an aptitude for these things, but perhaps there's some hidden talent within that I didn't know about. After all, I didn't realize that a career in libraries was for me.
Up until now, Yahoo! has been really good about restricting spam, and for a while, even my spam folder was kept pretty trim. I don't know what happened that would allow so much spam to be getting past the filter. My online activities for the last few weeks have been much less than usual, and I haven't been visiting any sights that I didn't frequent before. Maybe those clever spammers have found a way to get past the precautions that were already in place. Hopefully it will all clear itself up.
