I keep getting adoption spam with the subject; adopt your little bundle of joy. when you open the email, you see a young couple in a very field of dreams (hack) holding a baby.

it seems to me that adoption should be a spam boundary. I understand hoodia, viagra, every kind of drug under the sun and of course a good rehab because you're now a junky. but children?

who direct markets children?

"get your child. we've got all kinds, whites, browns, yellows and beiges. all ages, too, from infant right up to teen. whatever kind of child you want, we got it. and at discount prices. just come to our wholesale child warehouse and pick your child today. it's as easy as 1, 2, 3. pick the kid, pay 9.99 and wallah, you can be a parent, too. we're so confident you're going to find the child you want, we've even implemented a 90-day return policy JUST IN CASE.

if you're ready to be a parent, and can't get knocked up, or make it abroad like the jolie-pitt's, come on down to the wholesale child warehouse today!"

the god damned shame of it.

This reeks. It sounds like a scheme to rival any Nigerian investment spam. You have to jump through all kinds of hoops with various state and local agencies, it's not as simple as double-clicking and ding, "you've got kid!"

It sounds like they're out to stack their fees on top of all the other exorbitant fees that are involved.
