Email experts advise checking your ‘Spam’ folder periodically, since some communications you actually want or need might accidentally drop into it. I do that on a relatively regular basis, especially for my business email address, from where I solicit jobs for my freelance technical writing.
Going through that folder this past May revealed the curious “Certified Python Expert” communication highlighted in the above screen shot. I kept thinking someone had confused me with a herpetologist. Then I thought, no, they must believe I had worked in the gay male porn business. If you think about it, there’s not much difference between the two.
However, a thorough search for “python” will produce information on a software program – something that isn’t necessarily related to reptiles or porn. But the fact the sender addressed me as “Dear” made me wonder about their ultimate intentions. If you had the same thoughts about snakes or porn, you’re either in serious need of mental help or you’re just plain perverted.
Either way, you’ve found the perfect blog for both!
