Generic Web-Comic #134 - part 78!
It's a kinda obvious follow-up to last week's strip. Ask for people to submit emails, and put an address on your website for them to email them to, and you're pretty much guaranteed that you'll have more responses than you've got time to deal with. But that's OK, because none of them will be worth taking the time to deal with anyway. Unless, as discussed here, you're in need of some "v1@gra" or some magical weight-loss drug. Or the ever entertaining Nigerian gentleman who wants to give you vast sums of money. The latest trend seems to be offering people jobs via spam - they've moved on from the fake Rolex (or genuine r01ex!) market which we had a massive flood of a few months back. And 'smallcaps'. Oh dear god, those bloody smallcaps. Lots and lots of spam about smallcaps. I don't even know what a smallcap is! But thanks to spam, I just don't care in the slightest! All I know for sure is that I'm completely sick of them and never want to buy a single smallcap in my entire life.
And I'm still serious, by the way. You can still email Hubert a question and he still might answer it in a future strip...
(Oh, and just because I finally decided to look it up, Wikipedia tells us that a smallcap is an economics term used to describe a firm whos market cap is below US$1 billion. Or alternatively, TheFreeDictionary defines 'small-cap' (adj.) as "Of or relating to relatively small companies that have little equity and a small number of shares of common stock outstanding." So there you go.)
