subculture confusion through acronyms

I wondered why I suddenly started getting loads of spam about pills to treat Eating Disorders. Then it occurred to me that ED expands to another condition.

The spam I get on this doesn't leave much to the imagination... The latest is to have a woman's name, with something like "Megadik" or "Bigfukstik" in the middle of it, as the subject line. (Eg, "ElaineBigHonkinRodGonzales".) WTF?

Spam topics seem to come in waves. Penis enlargement seems to have had a major comeback recently. I guess that's not the same thing as impotence meds, and probably appeals to a much younger target group, but from my POV, it's all in the same general area. :)

To say nothing of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

When I was young, it was CO (commanding officer to the military, conscientious objector to the antiwar crowd).

Gotta watch what you search for. I had heard that viagra could possibly help people with diabetic neuropathy in the genital area because of the increased blood flow. So I googled before there was a google (probably Alta Vista or Yahoo)and almost immediately got flooded by email wanting to help me enlarge my penis. Shit, I'd just buy a bigger dildo if I cared about size.;)

I've been confused by CBT (Computer-based Training) vs. CBT (you know, but not appropriate for this "family" livejournal page).

So I thought of a porn application:

CBT at CBOT (The Chicago Board of Trade): a Computer-Based Training course.

Yes, that's been in my quote file for years! :-)
