Back off, Mannion -- she's mine.


For the last two weeks I have had one chat spam every single day on Skype, which has usually not had this sort of thing (although I do get the occasional fake MS update notice), all from "different" people using the same wording and trying to direct me to the same website. Although I'm of course used to lots of this in e-mail, I am disproportionately affronted that it's happening on Skype.


Isn't that illegal? Since you are charged for the text?


The NYT tech blogger had something about how to block cell spam a while back:

I have so far only ever gotten text spam from one number, so I finally texted back "QUIT," and the number was henceforth blocked by Verizon.

Hey, I got an obscene phone call on my cell phone last night. How the morons got my number, I don't know--I give the it out very grudgingly.
