Microsoft and drug company Pfizer are taking aim at those seemingly endless advertisements for fake Viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs that constantly flood the in-boxes of virtually all men who use e-mail. The two companies yesterday announced they had filed 17 lawsuits against online pharmacies they say sent hundreds of millions of unwanted e-mail ads, or spam, to users of Microsoft's Hotmail e-mail program last year alone.

The article talks about ads for "drugs that constantly flood the in-boxes of virtually all men who use e-mail"
Men who use e-mail? Huh? My Mom gets Viagra spam too, along with "how to pick up women" spam, and she hates it. The spamming idiots don't know or care if they are sending spam to men, women, or children.
