Anti-Spammers Are Lamers

Posted on:March 24 2007

I'm getting lots of funny and strange mails from time to time, but this one was a bit different:

From: Foobar Baz <foobar@example.com>
Subject: anti-spammers are lamers
Body:

subj

regards, spammer.


What's the problem of this guy? Doesn't he like my modded blog comment form? Or was this against alvaro 'spam-killer' celis? I think I'll never get to know :)

I think it's nothing personal, i.e. not your comment form. I see lots of people getting emails exactly like this lately. Just some sort of spam that doesn't make sense (they are not even trying to sell you anything!)

Got this mail, too. Seems to be some kind of spam ;-)
I guess somebody tried to demonstrate how mighty his spam-network is.

They probably assume that most of the population doesn't know how spam filters work so the fact that such an e-mail couldn't possibly get blocked (because it's not even really spam) wouldn't matter to them. Also, I heard that most spam blockers that put different weights on words actually make it easier, not harder, for e-mails with the word "spam" to get through because real spam would never have the word.
