Is it appropriate to use chopsticks when encountering Chinese spam? That seems to be turning into an issue here.... :-)

I prefer to use these. Like Chinese Spam, they keep showing up. I find 2 or 3 a year in the street while going for my daily walk. "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." (Yogi Bera)
I never mastered the art of chopsticks or embroidery.

We are lucky there isn't more of it.

If my spam was cut into bite sized cubes I could stab 'em with one chop stick. Don't know what I'd use a second one for. :-)

I use chopsticks when I eat at Chinese restaurants. My theory is I should keep in practice in case I ever revisit the old country.

I know that often when folks mention a problem they're really not looking for a solution ... just want to get it off their chest.

But seriously folks, there is an easy way to handle most spam problems. MOST email programs have a feature where, if you right click on the offending email, your give some choices, one of which is "block senders domain" (the domain being the last part of the email address like @spam.china)

If you take the time to religiously block these spam emails, pretty soon you'll find you get less and less. I check my email every day and may find one piece of spam or most times none at all. It does take a little effort though, especially in the beginning.

So there ya go, normal programming can now resume ;o)

Thanks, Bud, but my e-mail doesn't have much of a spam problem. I was referring to the forum posts here hawking Chinese bearings, etc. :-)

Well sadly Mr Wang never responded to making the axle bearings for us. Mr Wang may have took Wings and went the Wong way to the factory.

If we all save a nickle we will be in a pickle when it's the wong way or no way!!! A good chance i'm wrong but in the old days was a not perfect solution was to use model A bearings and races?? Yes i know model A bearings are not threaded but i would rather be wrong than wong!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.

I thought the only use for a chop stick is to adjust the third brush in a Model A generator..

I always thought having one chop stick was pretty much the same as having one walkie talkie. :-)

Chop sticks are to pick the cockroaches out of your food so you don't have to touch them. I am an exterminator (22 years) and will not eat in a Chinese restaurant.

You guys were so hard on him. He only wanted to sell bearings, Even if he was finding it difficult to source the obsolete sizes in the aftermarket transmissions some of us use at least he tried.

Someone would think you don't like people from beyond the USA. Hey look my steering wheel is on the wrong side.
