Fun and free e-cards for all... for the geek, for the addict, for the artist, for the musician, for the conspiracy theorist, for the chef, for the tasteless, for the tactless, for just about anyone. Where do you go for all of your e-card needs?

This site is pretty cool. Not only do you draw the card yourself, but when the recipient views it, they see each brushstroke. Cool stuff.

Yay for email harvesters!

The funny thing is, after running over someone repeatedly with a truck after they gave my email address to one of these sites, I'd be the one going to jail!

Um, I'm pretty sure I don't actually have any e-card needs.... I express the need to annoy my friends in other ways -- ways that don't involve spam or spyware.

I'll admit to not using all of these sites, but the ones I have used haven't caused me any problems (tacky postcards, crack, inanyus, bertisevil). Sorry for any inconvenience to you all...

E-Cards: For when you care enough to send the very least.

I'm partial to drinkmail, but I'm one of the people that came up with the idea during a prolonged binge.
And I promise that we don't let anyone near our email addresses!

It can't be stressed enough, for anyone who's not yet in on the scam, that although any or all of these may be entertaining, cool, innovative, whatever, and some may actually be benign (hey, who knows?), the major purpose of e-cards' existence is to harvest e-mail addresses. You may not see the effect right away, but you (if you're the recipient of the card, anyway, the only one whose address has to be correct) will be spammed.

So instead, just point the people you love to charming web-cards like these, which don't require any submission of e-mail addresses, and which are much, much funnier.

What a bunch of negative ninnies.

Dear Otis,

I am a Nigerian prince who will be coming to the US to find a bride. Because of certain customs restrictions I cannot bring cash. I was given your name by a friend. Please send me your bank account numbers to the email address listed on this page. I will transfer $10 million US dollars into your account and then withdraw $9 million when I am in the country. The $1 million difference is yours for your trouble.

Thank you,

Kinky Cards and Pulp Cards are good.

I always wondered how the Guggenheim Foundation managed to stay afloat all these years. Now I know. E-mail scams! Thanks eyeballkid!
