Hi There!

For some reason, spammers think that sending me an email with a friendly greeting like "Hi there!" in the subject line is going to get me to open the email. This may have worked a decade ago, when I was in college and the Web was new. I would get odd emails from classmates and others when I was in college. Now? I know everyone that sends email to my primary accounts. None of them would use that as a subject line.

Besides, all it ever does is make me think of the beginning of Peter Gabriel's Big Time. Who the hell wants that in an email?
