My Indian brotherhood is now bitten by the SNB (Social Networking Bug). Like their counterpart in the western world they are also trying to create “something” which they can encash with some “big brothers” to become instant rich so that they can boost their ego to show off that they have also done it.
bigadda dot com is one of them, a pathetic, brainless piece of hopeless junk.
What infuriates me is their junk invitation e-mails which doesn’t stop coming no matter what I do.
So finally I decided to bust them.
Here is the e-mail I keep on getting from Sharmila, Shalu, Dipti, Geetha, Sita and millions of other “Female” names …

Since my motherland doesn’t have any anti-spamming law, which is obvious as the people behind running the country are close relatives of Donkeys and never bothered about it, I can’t do anything more than just busting them online.
