Things that don't piss you off, that piss off many others.

One thing that doesn't piss me off at all is email spam. Lots of people really get worked up about that. It is a net plus for me, as the few messages I do read often provide me with a quick laugh (I remember one asking if I wanted a "beafy" penis...lol), and I always enjoy the ones from Barrister Nigel Pierce from England. Email spam provides insights that I can use in real life. Keep it brief and succinct, unlike almost all spam.

You realize that most spammers do not understand that long winded walls of text have zero chance of succeeding, and that helps me remember to cut it short with my own writing and speaking. There is a tremendous lack of imagination in spam presentation. But it doesn't piss me off at all...thankfully.

The number of copycat "piss you off" threads in OOT:

Things that should piss you off, but don't.
Things that shouldn't piss you off but don't
Things that should piss you off, but don't
Things that should piss you off, but don't

Delete then. Never seen a thread other than the main one. We'll make this one and done. Already ready to quit after one thread...lol.

Or maybe not.

In 2012, Microsoft Research released a paper [PDF] looking at why the Nigerian or “419” scam in particular has persisted over the years. They found that because such a large swath of internet users have been trained to recognize that certain scam, the small portion of people that do respond are more likely to ignore the red flags and send money.

While a craftier email may get the attention of more people, many of them would turn out to be “false positives” who cut contact with the scammer before handing over any cash. A consistently obvious email narrows down the pool of responders to the most gullible individuals—a.k.a. the people scammers are looking to target.
