I've being getting odd-titled spam too. This morning I received the rather lovely sounding octopus inescapable eight. I've noticed sometimes the body of the message has a load of random words in too. I was reading an article about Bayesian spam filters which are 'trained' on spam and non-spam emails you've received and which sort it based on the probability of particular words indicate spam; I wonder if this is the spammers' attempt to get round it?
Wonderfully amusing are they not?!
I expect it is a new way of getting round them...I have SpamCop on my website email (where these come from) and these mails are the only ones that don't get marked out as such.
All the Viagra adverts and 'Make your woman moan' type ones have **SPAM** at the start of them hehe
I don't know why I get so many male oriented ones...my email is to vampGIRL for chrissake lol!!
Octopus Inescapable Eight could be a great name for a free-jazz band though, could it not??
That article was damned funny lol!!
And, AAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!, you have discovered me!!! I made *such* an effort to hide the stubble in my photos as well:((
*sobs uncontrollably before reaching for the pipe and slippers*
OMG!! Look at this!!
Just got it...
Even folk singers are in on the act these days!!

Duty obvs? Sounds like something out of a Tom Clancy novel.
Work=boo! Work sucks, so I'm glad I'm working for me. Although not working very hard right now I'm afraid, I keep getting drawn to the poota!
The white hot chocolate sounds yummy, I may have to try some, mmm.
I've been sent many penis-enlarging spams, does anyone actually buy their shit? Can't we have some bust enhancing spam? That might actually be useful in my case!
You don't need bust enhancing spam!!
Just swear by Gossard as I do;) (and corsetry that pushes it all up when you sit down)

Now I'm drinking Whittard's WHITE hot chocolate...pure sex in a mug hehe!! Yummy!!
Mmm, that white hot choc is gorgeous isn't it?
I think I may have a a slight Whittard's addiction... I keep buying things in there! Eeeps, too many lovely things!
I was using Mozilla mail, now I'm using Thunderbird. Both are excellent, I couldn't live without the junk filters on them!
After a while, the mail client really does start to work out what is crap! Ingenious! ;)
You should give one a go if you really start to get fed up! :)
I can't stay out of that damn shop either lol!!
I have SpamCop on my webspace, then collect it all to my Yahoo...keeps me entertained for hours:)
Hi there. You don't know me, but I was introduced to your site by a mutual friend, Donald (Latex Warrior). I work in the MDEC, too. I'm on the late shift. I agree with you on the fact that it is a no brainer job. However, after spending seven years on a factory floor, I think the MDEC is bliss. Just like you said, 'CD on, Zone Out, Key like buggery'. Is the night shift any different to mine? I was thinking about swapping, but am not sure.
I'd love it if you could get back to me in reply to this. From what I've read of your MDEC griping, I think we'd get on.
It's a bit more relaxed I think...you don't have to switch seats and move around all the time, so you get to settle in at your desk and unpack your crap everywhere...(not that you're supposed to though;))
And we don't have stretch hour...but you can win hours off, and even nights off at the moment on a 'personal best' system. I think you'd prefer it to be honest...there are quite a few people in my team who've switched from lates and they're happy.
Also, providing you can get to sleep as soon as you get home, you can generally get up at 1ish and have time in town...but it does mean no more weekday drinking:/
(so I get hammered on the weekend hehe)
Most of the spam I get has to do with credit and money and stuff like that. Maybe it's cos I'm in America. :D
I have received bust-enhancing spam before. Though I think everyone on the planet has received penis-enhancing spam, regardless of gender.
