Excessive Email Execution System

For E-Pulverising
  (+9, -3)

  [vote for,

Have you ever had a piece of spam/chain mail/obvious scam/etc that was so irritating, offensive or repugnant that merely purging it from your inbox seemed insufficient? An email so grating that you wanted to see it destroyed in an entertaining fashion? If so, then the EEE system is definitely for you.

This email client/add on for existing email programs is similar to ordinary email services in almost all respects. However, in addition to the standard 'delete' button, users are presented with an alternative in the 'exterminate' option. Choosing this will take the user to an extensive netdisasteresque range of email annihilation options. The user picks the elimination of their choice and is treated to a short but enjoyable animation of the email text on a piece of paper being fed to a pack of lions,set on fire, strapped to a rocket and fired into the sun, or put through any number of other methods of eradication as the email itself is deleted.

The user breathes a sigh of sadistic satisfaction.

       Well if it's extermination you're after, nothing tops a Darlek.

       At first glance I thought this would be a device which kills spammers.

It should also eliminate any remaining traces on your PC that the file ever existed by overwriting with 1s and 0s several hundred times whilst depicting an animation of Arthur Dent jumping up and down on it until his feet hurt.

       Excellent! [+] I suggest personifying the offending email by using it as a texture on a nasty NPC creature, which is loaded into a FPS map styled as a garden maze, then hunted down with an axe à la Shining.

       Ok, I'm for it. But really, I think this idea would be more a waste of time and resources than the offending spam itself. Kinda like Halfbakery.

       I like that idea [p_t]. I'm sure that would make a great upgraded version. Perhaps a range of games with spam destruction as the goal. It's a shame that the name SpamHunter is taken.

       SpamStalker, SpamButcher and SpamMaimer are much better anyway.

       SpamStalker sounds like a TV character. In fact, why not an investigative-journalism series where, each week, the team start with a currently-common piece of spam and trace it across the world to confront it's originator face-to-snout?
