Spamming: Talented But Wrong Focus?

I would like to congratulate that small, elite bunch of software engineers and programmers who spend their time creating masterpieces that affect so many others.

Take today:   I’m feeling a bit lonely, so imagine my delight when I discovered that I have been sent 74 e-mails.  When I look at the titles I see that they can help me with enlarging my manhood, getting the right girls and enjoying the benefits of acai berries … and the best part is that I sent all of these to myself (even though I don’t remember doing so).  Sure enough they have e-mail addresses from my web sites in the From box.

I spend a lot of time contemplating how these hard-working, intelligent, invaluable members of our society must have a penis the length and girth of a telegraph pole, or so many men and/or girls that they’re perpetually worn-out.  They must also be the fittest, healthiest people on the planet with their supplies of health supplements and miracle berries. 

But who are these men and women of mystery?

Well, they obviously feel justified in what they do.  BUT perhaps they need to

  • focus on what they’ve got rather than what they’ve not
  • drop the grudges they’ve held against the rest of humanity for too long
  • start engaging with the real world, rather than the world locked in their own mind
  • see things in perspective; after all, being refused a bag of sweets at the age of 5-years-old is hardly a charter for world domination.

Perhaps we don’t understand what they’ve been through, or how they feel, or how it has affected their confidence, but sadly, even if we do understand any or all of these things, we can’t change them.  The only person who can change their response to these things is the individual concerned, providing they actually want to change … or of course via some supernatural intervention from God.

I wonder what could happen if these people applied their gifts, talents and abilities to help other people?

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
