Spammers Sure Have Something to Learn About Marketing

Here’s a spam I just received:

As I look at this… some questions pop to my mind:

  • e*e.n t-h’i* WHAT?
  • Whadda heck is this?
  • Do they really think that getting past spam blockers will mean somebody will read their email – AND solve their grammar puzzle? (Although I suppose some people do, that’s why they keep sending these…)

And last but not least:

  • Have these guys something to do with this spam?

Uh… seriously. What are these guys thinking?

    Straig-h_t d’a.y s we h_a,v.e s e*e.n t-h’i*s cl.imb.

    I think it reads: “Straight days we have seen this climb.”

    Good thing my spam gets directed straight to trash.
