My plan is designed for the person who is not content with an Inbox filled with ads and other spam - First, I would create a random character generator - each day it would generate 100,000 or so random letters and numbers, then they would all be fed into a spell checker - all non-words and numbers would be tossed out, and only random real words kept. These real words would then be formatted into an email and sent to you. Presto, a private non-spam email just for you.

       Whoa. If you could program that massive thing, then that would be pretty funny.

       Wouldn't be too hard. Heck, like the recent HipCrime floods, you could have it maintain simple grammatical rules so that the sentences almost kind of sort of make sense.

       Better than just random characters, load a wordlist (there are some available for download) into an array and select random assortments of words, then use the grammatical dingus wiml suggests to make them into sort of coherent messages. Cool.

       "Mad libs"?

       How does randomly generated equal personal?
What's the point of reading something that has no soul behind it?
  

       At least the ad was generated by someone for alot of someones. This is generated by no one FOR someone. I'm not feelin' this. Sounds like you need friends.

       "Every day" is two words. The only time you use "everyday" is when it's an adjective, like "I'm wearing my everyday shoes."

       Sounds like spam mail to me.
