I somehow came to read the “blog” of the Perl NOC one day–the network admins for the perl.org sites. They get some really amusing spam. And then there’s that category of things where you think it might be spam, but you’re not sure, like this one.
But anyway, today I was checking through my own mail that got filtered as spam, and got the following:
from Selma Orr <REMOVED@REMOVED.com> to email@example.com, date Wed, Mar 26, 2008 at 12:27 PM subject I hate you damm Instant delivery worldwide. Certified by VISA and VeriSign. http://irisembreyck.blogspot.com
They spam me, tell me they hate me, curse at me, and then expect me to buy whatever they’re selling? Also, why does “firstname.lastname@example.org” get a lot of spam? That address never existed! (I should disclaim that this message wasn’t actually sent to email@example.com, otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten it. But I get rejected mail to firstname.lastname@example.org showing up in the logfiles daily!)
