VIA-GRA bogus senders e-mail message

The senders of the following VIAGRA spam message presumably did not like the balanced critique of spam which I have written, and maybe thought I should have been more in favour of spam. This is one of many likely paranoid psychopathic explanations which might possibly explain why the guilty parties took it upon themselves to fake-up the e-mail to make it look as if it came from various false addresses at this website.

Note: If you have received a spam e-mail like this, with a bogus sender address ending in #zyra.org.uk , remember: It did not come from here. It's a malicious case of spoofing. If you intend to get revenge against the senders, there are a few notes after the spam message (inc headers) which has been stuffed and mounted here:

Now, the first thing is, in life it's important to choose your friends, but it's even more important to choose your enemies. The senders of this spam have chosen unwisely. For spoofing e-mail addresses at this site, a curse might always lurk over them. They will never know the methods by which bad luck is haunting them. However, an apology may help to remove the curse, if it's not too late!

Meanwhile, if you hate the persistent nuisance of spam, never buy via spam. Instead, seek your subtle revenge against spam by buying via a proper website for example www.zyra.org.uk

As regards Viagra, and generic viagra, and other much hyped-up products advertised in spam: What makes you think you need it? You probably don't need it. You don't want it. And, nomatter how much it's oversold, you're not going to want it, are you?!

As a minor point about the medical issues with this kind of thing, you may find that if you take Viagra you end up with, in the words of one sufferer "a thumping headache". So, instead of being some macho image, you might end up having to say to your partner "Not tonight, I've got a headache!"

Another thing about buying via spam is that you can't be sure if anything about it is genuine. If the senders of the spam have lied about the sender and have lied about the unsubscribe, (also see the opt-in lie), what makes you so sure you won't pay your money and get nothing in return (fake drugs). It's very easy for an online medical facility to just collect the money and not deliver the goods, especially when the product is something which implies embarrassing impotence and general inadequacy.
