The Lite Side

The Ultimate Spam Email

Dan Knight - 2005.02.10

Spam. Junk email. Unsolicited bulk email.

Whatever you call it, it's the biggest pain in the inbox since the invention of email. Worse, there seems to be almost no way of avoiding it without subjecting your friends to some sort of challenge-and-response system.

You know how that works. You send someone an email - sometimes a reply to one they just sent you - and you get an email back from their anti-spam service asking you to verify that you really sent it, verifying that you're a real person and not a spambot.

Hey, I just sent it, didn't I?

Unfortunately, the protocols governing email make it easy for spammers, and as I've been raging against that machine, I've seen a whole lot of spam in recent weeks. Phrases keep popping up - mortgage, former prime minister, lottery, Rolex, millions of dollars, \/iagara, add 3", cheating housewives, online meds, c-i-a-|-i-s, overseas business, office supplies, checks, toner, software, brand new stock - not to mention numerous misspellings and tortured use of the English language. (Although lately I've been receiving spam in Spanish and German as well.)

Well, it's time we put everything together and created the Lite Side's

Ultimate Spam Email
