    I only open emails from family, people on sodahead, and fanfiction.net. And sometimes youtube.

    Thanks for the choice. Although those titles are useless. I've spent my life memorising obscure words and I only open e-mails with obscure words in the title or extinct languages. The only thing that is free and worth having is some uneaten chips in a service station.

    None of the above. Too many computer scams. Don't gamble or buy lotto tickets so how could I win anything?

    NONE OF THE ABOVE!

    I immediately delete ALL email with any of these subject lines. They are invariably spam and frequently lead to malware.

    None of the above.

    My ideal subject line would be. "New bank details for Mr Bill Gates."

    CH-CHING!!! :)

    Actually, no subject line. I look at the sender and if I don't recognize it, into the trash it goes.

    I never open the "Free gift" ones. There is no such thing. I'm not going to waste my time taking a never-ending survey to get nothing in return. I don't know anyone who has actually "won" anything online.
    I actually open very few links. Been burnt too many times so don't waste your time or mine. I don't pay as much attention to the subject matter as I do the email address it's coming from.

    Actually none of the above, my spam usually picks out anything that is not in my address book. This is on reason I switched to gmail. com and got away from Yahoo.

    I use filters to send email with keywords like "lottery" anywhere in them for instance to trash, I actually have a lot of filters I have implemented over time. I just sort my trash folder by sender once a day and give them a quick scan to make sure I don't delete any legitimate emails. It works pretty good.

    Actually NONE of these subject lines will get me open an email, but I just chose the most crazy one! lol

    The only thing that gets me to open an email is if it's from a friend or from a business associate that I expect email from. Otherwise I generally automatically mark them for delete! Too darn many viruses and trojans out there!!

    Maybe.

    Because I already know that:

    I never win at gambling, so "you win" is a lie.

    "Free gift" always continues with "with purchase of $100 worth of other merchandise or services, or wading through 1000 on-line offers." Not worth a Continental.

    "I'm young and single" is never aimed at me unless that person sought me out on other grounds.
