I Am Not A Number! But Still A Prisoner At Spam Village
Posted by infinitygoods on February 1, 2008
I’m a huge fan of “The Prisoner,” a British tele series from the late 1960s which I watched when I was a toddler. I was probably too young for that matter, as it has marked me for life. “I am not a number!” was a favorite quote of mine throughout childhood and I still use it from time to time. It came to mind as I was reading all the numbers I have been assigned by a spam e-mail which wormed its way out of the bulk mail filters and into my inbox. The nerve of these spam e-mails, really!
I have been assigned a reference number, a ticket number, a lucky number (oooh, lucky me!) and a serial number. There’s also an international number to call! But I don’t think I’ll be calling it. They want INFORMATION! INFORMATION! But who is their Number 1? That would be telling! Who is Number 2?
I AM NOT A NUMBER! I am a free woman! I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, NUMBERED OR SPAMMED!
Here’s the series introduction:
When the prisoner wakes up, he finds himself in The Village.
Here’s The Village and its architectural history as documented by “The Antiques Road Show”:
If you’re interested in the DVD boxed set of the complete 17-episode series, it’s available here.
Be seeing you! 😉
