I just read an informative article about the source of spam email on the BBC website. I've read a few articles about bots, but I imagined a larger-scale system. The article shows how spamming is also a cottage industry. That sounds nice doesn't it?
The article tracks spam to it's source, at least in one case.
Of course, I receive spam email and some of the subject lines catch my eye. Here are a few of them and they are not safe for work.
"Hey cat dick!"
"Set your lassie on fire with your giant new rod!"
Insert your own Rodney Dangerfield-style comebacks to these, for extra fun.
