GMail and Spam
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (2)

I've already gotten about 30 spam e-mails in my new GMail, and 5 of them made it through the filter.

What's a little disconcerting is that they all seem to be from the same general class of spammer, using the same technique. And even though I've reported each of the ones that have made it through as spam, I keep getting them. Here's the latest to do so:

Cigarette Warehouse - [URL of the spamming sons-a-bitches omitted]

BIG MONEY off HUNDREDS or even THOUSANDS of dollars over the course of a year when purchasing cigarettes through Cigarette Warehouse.

We stock only the freshest cigarettes of the highest quality: Marlboro, Camel, Winston, Benson & Hedges, Salem, Kool, ALL the premium brands including Dunhill, Barclay, Virginia Slims, and so many more. Our products are fresh and genuine.

Get your smokes now: [URL of the spamming sons-a-bitches omitted]

Note the seemingly random word lists at the bottom. You'd think this would make these sorts of spam easy to detect, but for some reason they're successfully fooling the filters.

Any ideas why?
