Beautiful Spam

I keep getting spam messages. We all do, I’m sure. Mine are usually variations over a theme. Lately, they’ve been vague responses to something I’ve posted, telling me whatever I wrote was interesting and ending with a link. I’ve often wondered how they mix these messages up. How do they keep them fresh? Today, due to a tiny bug or perhaps a copy/paste error, I found the answer.

This is the formula for my soon-to-be-trashed spam. Isn’t it lovely?

  1. Ooh, those variations look very familiar. How interesting to see the underlying “logic” in them!
