  1. I can see it better on your screen than one we got at the office. The spacing was skewed on that. Those spammers get sneakier and sneaker with their subject lines and their messages. cute.

  2. spam’s market

    What do spammer’s hope to gain?

    Fame?
    Fortune?
    Fun?

    Perhaps they are setting an ambush for what will be the datachological finds of the 24th century, along with what will be the bane or bliss of suffering sophomores agonizing in anthologies some distant day.

    That is what is nice about spam filters with simple delete & purge functions though: bye-bye forever!!
