I don’t know much about Global Bono, perhaps because I’m not spending too much about spam. Every time I open my mail and notice about my Junk Mail, I immediately delete all of them—no reading at all. Those that are get sent to the Inbox are reported instantly as spam so they won’t end up in my Inbox ever again. I am truly sad for you, though. That would have been tough to deal with. Well, all types of spam are. Hopefully, e-mail platforms have picked them up and labeled them officially as spam so nobody gets to receive them.

There are so many of them that should also be part of the Hall of Shame, but let me tell you one thing: those big-time companies should be one of them. I’ve read one of the posts here that talk about endless mails from well-known businesses. A lot of us tolerate them because we think that’s completely normal. It’s definitely not! Spamming is when you’re flooded with useless e-mails, and trust me, these people do send them quite often as well. Anyway, thanks for bringing this Bono matter up. Now there are more things to watch out for in our mails.

Manny, happy to help. I’m more worried about the ones I don’t know about yet, but it’s good to identify the offenders.

Dominic, don’t be too quick to hit that delete button! You never know when you might miss an important email improperly flagged as spam.
