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

:lol:

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. :)

All inputs are optional. The e-mail address won't be published nor shared.

  • Moderation: Comments from first-time commentators must be approved manually before they appear.
  • Behave yourself! No insults, no illegal content, etc.! Should go without saying, don't you agree...?
  • Website: I don't mind blogs with ads, but purely commercial links are not welcome and will be deleted. Just like pure spam comments.
  • E-mail notification on new comments: You will have to activate this function once with a link in an automatically sent confirmation mail. These notifications can be disabled again with the link in every mail, of course.
  • Twitter: If you got a Twitter account, you can enter your Twitter name (with or without the @, doesn't matter) which will then be displayed next to any comment (including old ones) that contain the same e-mail address. (Which also means that you must fill in that e-mail field.)
