    Pogue’s Basics: Report text ads and spam
    February 1, 2017 - One of the blessings of the cellphone era: There’s no spam, as there is with email, and no telemarketer calls, as there is with landlines.

    It's good information but don't expect much in the way of actual change.

    Spammers by phone or email have the ability to alter the apparent source of the message. You or the carrier may block the reported number but the spammer just uses a different number and moves on. Since most of this originates overseas there is little in the way of legal recourse.

    I thought they had found some horrible new health data on the canned delicacy. lol
    That stuff is gross.

    I've heard of forwarding them to your cell phone carrier. Sooner or later the spammers will just find a way around it, they always do.

    I actually did, too. I was going to say I like the lower sodium regular flavor diced up, fried a little and added to my scrambled eggs. lol

    Me too. I saw the hawaiians do some interesting things with spam once upon a time. With one cafe serving different spam dishes. But you know what, all of them tasted just like spam! Seem like the island got lots of it in during ww2 and it became part of their diet. Still lingers on. The only way I have liked it is when you grind it up with a good cheese, spread it on toast and then broil it for a few min. in the oven to melt the cheese. Not bad for spam.

    Chester Murphy did you know Vic Damome passed yesterday at 89?

    Ironic that he died on Valentine Day Eve when he was known for romantic songs like below.
