Spam, evolved

I’ve started received bayesian-busting spam on a regular basis. Typified by large blocks of surreally random words, they strive to reduce their spam-quotient by diluting the trigger words with large amounts of non-spam words. As a colleague commented, it does tend to reduce the comprehensibility of the marketing message somewhat, and can give rise to inadvertent humour, with such gems as:

‘cohesively delineates Krebs spaceships’
‘Amiga itself surprises paramount degree’
‘television resurrects evolute dictionary skeletons’
‘codifying beagles Janeiro snack rhythm’

I’m not really interested in buying herbal viagra, but I gotta get me one of those cohesive Kreb spaceship delineators. They sound cool.
