The Zen of Spam
Even notice at the bottom of spam-mail, there is often a strange wad of text? These words are often garbled, appearently lifted from a book of some sort, maybe just a randow clot of prose that the spammers have created (although I doubt it). I starting reading these pseudo-poetic bits and more often than not, and after a while I noticed that they were sometimes poetic, bordering on poignant.
Each bit is very esoteric, like a Zen koan are Japanese haiku, if you will.
Hidden meaning is directly in front of me, if only I were not so blind as to see it…
I have gathered them here, along with the, *ahem*, sender’s name. All text is untouched, but I have formatted the prose.
I’ve also included the, *ahem, sender and what they are trying to sell me with the spam. I hope to see a pattern emerge after enough samples are collected.
Open your mind and enjoy:
