I haven’t written about spam in a long while. Not because I’ve stopped getting it (there is as much chance of that happening as there was of me winning the Miata raffle the other day), but because it has become routine. There hasn’t been anything new since I started getting spam in kanji.
For a while there 2 months ago the Postini report I get for my work address was telling me it was stopping over 200 pieces a day, but now it has fallen to an all time low of around just 25 a day. A few more seem to making it through the filter though, I get 4 or 5 a day when it used to be 4 or 5 a week. How they are getting past is a mystery as they are easily recognizable as spam. I got one this morning that I can see how it made it by, but for the life of me can not figure on its purpose:
