Spam Poetry

Spam 6

A friend of mine got a spam the other day. The type of spam that is random words to try to surpass spam filters... but it reads like poetry.A friend of mine got a spam the other day. The type of spam that is random words to try to surpass spam filters... but it reads like poetry.

Where we can knowingly eat our ruffian.
clodhopper toward sweeps the floor,
and bubble bath about starts reminiscing about lost glory;
however, of cloud formation bestow great honor upon..
When near alchemist returns home, steam engine over rejoices.
Sometimes near fundraiser panics,
but over avocado pit always write a love letter to defined by corporation!
shadows remain botched.
endoderm genuine fink haunt brainwash reformatory


Key the Keanu Reeves Whoa sound. Isn't that just deep? It doesn't make sense to me, either... but neither does any new age poetry...

Greetings Friend--you don't know me.
I'm here hawking my wares you see.

If you find your penis is tiny and wee
and your lady doesn't seem pleased,

have no fear! Viaglis is near!
For a prick that'll make her jaw drop to the floor
talk to your doctor, lawyer, or a common street whore.

This is the end, but here's my little diddity:
Viaglis can cause dizziness, dry mouth and big ole man-titties!

Thank you thank you!

Goodnight! (Hmm...could use a little tweaking, but not bad for 2 minutes!)

My question about this type of spam (1)

Is what the hell is it selling / doing? Is there something to click or whatnot? I haven't been seeing anything other than the 'spam poetry'

I believe they're designed to evade Bayesian filters, and ultimately to poison them with by associating all words with spam.

Obnoxious, and I have no idea who actually reads email with a subject like "zebra lefthanded carpeting". But I agree with you that quite a few have a sort of demented poetry.

You obviously aren't left handed and need to install zebra skin carpeting then!

That's a good find. I liked it so much I posted it to our Spam discussion forum [email-cop.com] .
