Anti-Spam Firm Teaches Spammers How To Spam With Jokes

from the that's-just-great dept

It’s not entirely clear what’s going on here, but in what appears to be something of a press release from an anti-spam firm, they basically explain a trick for getting spam through a spam filter — attach a dumb joke to it. Of course, this isn’t a new idea and has been done for quite some time. So, it’s not clear why this anti-spam firm suddenly feels the need to explain the technique (which probably doesn’t work that well anyway) to more spammers.
