    Post Your Favorite Spam E-mail

    For those who don't know what spam is, see definition, though I doubt that very much... Everyone here has probably gotten electronic spam at some point. Many of these are filled with utter nonsense, but sometimes the subject lines or body-text are inadvertently hilarious or meaningful. It hadn't occurred to me that it could be viewed as an art form though apparently it has to some. I remember a couple of years back listening to an NPR story about someone who had collected some of the more eclectic computer-generated "musings" from their SPAM-mail, whether it be the subject line or the inane randomly-generated text created in an attempt to scoot pass the filtering process, and assembling them into prose. Pretty fascinating.
    In light of that, I figured we could all share some of our more interesting SPAM text and the reason it gave us pause. I'll begin with...

    "Dumb and poor? Here's a simple way to make MONEY!"
    Wtf? How dare they assume I'm dumb!? :steam: And how do they know I'm poor? Any why do they think asking me that will induce me to follow up? Then again... there is probably someone who has clicked that link in the hopes it would pan out something. Tell me fellow MBTIc'ers that you weren't that chump.

    Of course... I clicked it. But only to find out who was asinine enough to send it. Scout's honor!

    Another interesting spam I got today had this text in it:
    "...college pentagon series hilton sets investigation remains wanted listed child issues intelligence..." All kinds of Freudian fun there.

    It's theoretically POSSIBLE, though not probable, that someone crawled out from under a rock today, created an e-mail account, and joined MBTIc. It could happen you know... an honest man could be elected too. All kinds of radical possibilities out there.

    An example would be these poor people, they've never had SPAM I'll bet.

    Not I. And after watching it, I'm sure I'm missing something.
