    Default Now THIS is spam!!!!

    Bizarre. I have just cleared out my SPAM folder in my emails - I try and do this regularly, because the last time I left it, my email manager decided to spam a very important email from Johnathon Palmer of Oulton Park fame!!!!

    Anyway, whilst having a good tidy up - I found (amongst the usual Viagra/body part enhancing cr@p ) this................

    Hi. My name is Perry

    For all we know she is still on the way. The number of armed retainers who lounged about and practiced
    head, but it bordered on madness. If it misfired I would imagine
    stations had picked up the discharge static of a large


    .........and that is it!!! Now I am guess there are bits missing, but I am thoroughly confuzzled!!!!!! Secret message from the other side?!?!? (or just randm ramblings from a loon I have never heard of!!?!?)

    So don't ever accuse anyone on here of spam - the true spam king is 'Perry' (whoever the heck he is!!!)

    Ha ha!! I was very good - only a few Dry Martini and lemonades - I left my lovely Team 'bonding' over oceans of beer at about 10.45!! Up bright and early this morning, and ready to do the shopping (Not sure how they are going to be though - and most of them are supposed to be in work today as well!! )

    Actually there is a scientific reason why they have used this message.

    Some Spam security filters assign 'values' to words. This means that known Spam words like 'Viagra' 'Money' 'Gambling' etc etc have HIGH value spam count.

    The spammer therefore uses LOW value words, which are not considered as Spam to 'lower' the overall average value of this email. Therefore Spam Security Filters will pass this as 'non spam' or 'low risk spam' which means its likely to get through the spam filter.

    Secondly, if the email isnt malicious, it will be relying on 'out of office' replies so that the spammer obtains your ligitimate email address. Which it will then sell onto to other spammers.

    By the way, my company specialise in corporate spam & Anti-Virus security (Although I am not one of the technicians , so my answer may not be 100% technically correct, but you get the idea )
