A Lot of Guys Tell Me They’re No Longer Using Viagra

Such hordes of you wrote me about the miracle drug, Viagra, as a prophylactic against the NSA that I fondly envisioned victory over the spooks with this tactic. Alas, Tom Bernhardt was the first of many to hypothesize that other spam-filters besides the NSA’s might catch emails bearing the V-word; Mark Carroll confirmed that unintended consequence: his son found Mark’s emails in his spam-folder.  As I mentioned, I had signed my emails to my long-suffering husband as “Viagra” all week, and he received them. So it may be a question of differing ISP’s or the level at which you’ve programmed your filter. (I responded to everyone who wrote regarding my earlier post; if you haven’t heard from me, please check your spam folder.)

Ergo, if you want to continue or begin using the V-word as Mr. Tice suggested, realize your missives may not always reach their targets.

Second, great minds run in the same channel: multitudes of you suggested that in addition to or in lieu of shrinking the font to 1 point, we change the print’s color to white. For a while, as this solution flooded in, I marveled at the ingenuity of LRC’s readers! But as the inundation continued, I marveled instead at Your Intrepid Reporter’s stupidity: why did such an obvious answer never occur to me? Well, I am duly humbled for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

Finally, M. Benedikt Buerger kindly sent me the link to the interview with Russ Tice I couldn’t locate. Thanks so much!
