    Revenge Against People Spamming My Car With Flyers

    I admit it, I have a huge pet peeve. I hate it when people walk through a parking deck and stick a pamphlet or flier under everybody's windshield wiper. It happens all of the time where I park. I never read them, and usually just throw it on the ground. However, I never notice they stuck it on my car until I've already gotten in, and it's always on the passenger side; thus making have to get out of the car again to remove it. I find this sort of advertising to be on the same level as spam emails, except there's not filter for this crap.

    Here's where you come in Cyclone Fanatics. Yesterday a flier stuck on my car also had an email address on it. The first thing I did was email the guy and complain about his spamming tactics and littering. I want to give him a taste of his own medicine though. If I want make this guy get an ungodly amount of email spam, where do I need to go to sign up his email?

    Thanks for your evil ideas in advance.

    Re: Revenge Against People Spamming My Car With Fliers

    I don't really have an answer, but I do believe they should all be responsible for the cleanup of the parking lot that following night after everyone has just taken them off of their window and thrown them on the ground.

    One of my biggest pet peeves is human's inability to clean up after themselves. There are garbage cans everywhere and still trash just lying all over the place. I'll admit I dump peanut shells, but even at ballgames I take my trash with me and throw it in a receptacle on the way out of the stadium. Hell, I even caused a breakup with a girl in high school because after she ate her McDonald's she proceeded to throw the bag out of the window. I stopped and made her go pick it up, told her she couldn't ride in my car if she was going to just dump trash on the road. I guess I don't blame her, but she broke up with me that night.

    Re: Revenge Against People Spamming My Car With Fliers

    I've forwarded all my spam email to people that send me chain emails before. It seemed like a pretty effective way to get people to quit sending me stuff.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Personally (you may be against it) I would sign up on a bunch of free pron sites.

    Re: Revenge Against People Spamming My Car With Fliers

    Could you somehow link the email to an ad on craigslist? I am not sure you can do that, and it might annoy the real people out there. Probably just have a car ad, but have the price be a little high so the average person won't respond.

    Rig your car so if the wiper is lifted your car explodes

    Re: Revenge Against People Spamming My Car With Fliers

    Mount a very visible camera on your dash board pointing right at windshield spammer. Also make a very visible sign that says this evidence will be given to police. . . . Then, expect to get keyed on the other side. . . . But you won't have the paper under your wiper.

    I think I may have found the answer to my own question:
    MailBait Fills Your (Or Someone Else

    I'll have to figure out a way to hide my IP, but this seems doable.

    That I think this is the way to go... just go to the library and do it from there so he doesn't have your IP...

    I also like the craigslist ad. Post on the "Free" section that you are getting rid of your porno collection that you've accumulated over the past 30 years and to have them email if interested.

    Sounds like she let you off the hook. Based on her food choice back in the day and her attitude towards keeping things clean she is surely a fat slob now. She did you a favor.
