Bad Spelling To Avoid Filters

from the that's-one-way-to-do-it dept

People are starting to purposely misspelling words in order to get their email newsletters past filters. For example, a legal newsletter has to spell sex as sez, and pornography as pormography. Otherwise, many of the readers would never get the newsletters. My favorite quote: “people are being forced to work around a computer’s natural stupidity.” I’d like to explain away my spelling errors using the same reason, but the fact that I misspell common words would probably give me away.
