Honest spam and unnecessary questions

Earlier today, a spam mail which slipped through my filter honestly announced its dishonest intentions already in the subject line:

New job! fishy


The main text then was just a “Ciao”, a link and badly translated prose. (And there have been are other variations with other words, of course. Most got filtered out correctly, though.)

And a comment spam disguised as questions asked yesterday, among other things:

On what a cursor operates this forum works?

I’ll be so kind and answer this question: Mostly, it’s probably one like this one arrow cursor, and this hand cursor and that text cursor are quite common, too – but basically, it doesn’t matter. :P

    In letzter Zeit haut es bei meinem Spamfilter auch wieder einiges Durch. Besonders so kleine Botschaften kommen öfters noch durch. Aber leider kommen keine lustigen Gedichte mehr, welche ewig viele Rechtschreib- und Grammatikfehler aufweisen. Des ist nämlich Spam der sogar mir gefällt.

    Dafür kam bei mir vor kurzem eine nette lange “Freundschafts”-Mail – maschinell übersetzt und entsprechend lustig, ähnlich denen von “Anghela”, über die ich mich letztes Jahr lustig gemacht habe. :)
