New Spam: Bush's staunchest

2006-10-09 1 min read Web marco

You know that a politician has become a hallmark when spammers start using their name in subject lines. This is because spammers have to guess some subject that is so common that it won’t trip up the spam filters. So the moment I started seeing more and more Bush spam, I knew that George W. Bush had made into the rare category of iconic that is the man that everyone talks about…

I mean, that’s quite a feat: I receive no spam pretending to talk about Jesus, Mohammad, Marilyn Monroe, or Christina Aguilera! That it would be Bush my spam talks about can only mean one thing: the random email generators are trying out everything, and the spam filters cannot tell real pro- and anti-Bush rants from spam!
