Spam doesn't bother me so much. My anti-spam software works pretty good at filtering the gold out of the excrement.

I too hate it, I replay with "Go F*** yourself!" I can deal with it in my email but a spam txt msg or soliciting phones make me angry for some reason.

At least for people in the US, try this. It is good for land-lines as well as mobile numbers.
Has made a big difference for me! I believe you can sign-up 5 numbers per email address.

HATE them! Them and the people that send them. AND to put icing on the cake, if you happen to be using USCell, you may get them from time to time that cost $5 each, and they wonder why I get upset trying to get the charges removed.

There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the p......now there is a no trespassing sign up.

I hate spam in any form. I don't recieve spam in a text message, but I recieve many email spam, and sometimes I'm very annoyed and I want to find them (the people responsible) and go Rainbow Six style on their a$$ (flashbang and clear).

If someone were to send me text message to my phone that has a $3/24 hour plan from T-Mobile with unlimited voie/texting and 200MB of data, oh, yea! I would definitely charge a spammer $3 for sending me a text message and this will cost me money per day if this happens. I mean, seriously... If a spammer sends me a text message for 90 consecutive days, T-Mobile will charge me $90 for the whole month if I put $100 into my T-Mobile prepaid account.

I absolutely hate text spam, they sent me so many dumb advertisement that you can't block at my cost. I would rather receive 100 email spam than few text spam.

Haha no it's a "Steve McKenna'd" shirt from Drinkin Made Easy TV show.

Here is my picture at higher res:

This is what is on the shirt:
Steve Mckenna'd: To be inebriated to the point where one loses control of their actions.
Examples may include drunk dialing, no restraint over bodily functions, streaking, etc.
"Sorry I hit on your mom last night, I was Steve Mckenna'd."

How can you tell, Rod? Upon closer inspection, I can't tell if he's wearing a 3DGM t-shirt due to low resolution. I really wish our monitors can support 300 pixels per inch so that we could have photos with a resolution of 384x384.
