I gotsta share what may be my favorite example of spam email ever received by myself. I've gotten it numerous times. On this occasion the subject line was merely a lower-case "hey," not something as devious as "re: our discussion." Wait a second, I don't remember having a discussion with a ... Hans at ... firstname.lastname@example.org?! Hmmm. Well, I'd better reply to this friend of mine anyway, just to make sure. Nor was it something romantic like "Horny Teen Sluts." The most perfidious are those with a subject line such as, "re: your business proposal," which then lead into a message extoling bestiality porn..
