The poetry of spam (NSFW)
in spite of public outcry
Apr 15, 2005
To fool the filters many email providers offer, some spam emails are use "filler text," fake writing designed to meet the spam filter's word quotas. I find some of them rather like poetry, dada-esk, and have recently been saving some of them (hey, I've got the room on my computer; and spam is the hallmark of my generation).
My question is, how the heck do they generate the text, and where do they come up with this stuff? Do they steal sentences from online sources, or just enter random words to some sort of program?
I find it all very fascinating.

Hoo boy. Would you (mods or whoever) mind putting "not work-safe" in the title? I hate to think of someone's boss coming up behind their shoulder just as "SHE LOVES GIANT..." er...yeah...flashes up on the screen.

Good, so I'm not the only one who has found these spam e-mails interesting. I've been keeping some of the more fascinating random subject lines that they've sent me. I think my favourites so far are "proctologist feels 5 coconuts" and "cannibal girls 8 mailman". They almost seem to be making sense, in a weird twisted sort of way. I've never actually opened any of their e-mails, though, since I like keeping the virus population on my computer at manageable levels.

"Lovely bitch with small dicks"
by Ruffianing P. Sue
The future is as bright as the promises of God.
It is almost possible to predict one or two days in advance,
Within a rather broad range of probability,
What the weather is going to be;
It is even thought that it will not be impossible to publish daily forecasts,
Which would be very useful to society.
Lavoisier considered weather forecasting to be almost as difficult art as medicine.
To love human beings in so far as they are nothing.
That is to love them as God does.
It may affront the military-minded person to suggest
A regime that does not maintain any military secrets.
A love affair with knowledge will never end in heartbreak.
Make a proper investigation first.
Proper investigation is good for a well-known person like yourself.
A pluralist in psychology is a thinker who will not exclude any attribute
Of human nature that seems important in its own right.
Can anybody remember when the times were not hard and money not scarce?
Genius. Pure genius.
