Spam !

Okay, so spammers are starting to have to find ways to confuse spam filters...

Well, they managed to slip a handful through my spam assassin filters,,,, Most of them have actually had some vaguely interesting stuff tagged onto the bottom.... The rest were literally just random characters

If they're going to keep this up I might have to bother reading some of my spam.... For comedy value if nothing else.

Stuff on the bottom of emails....

Perhaps believing in good design is like believing in God, it makes you an optimist.

I am a lie who always speaks the truth.
It is the fate of the great ones of this earth, to be apperciated only afetr they are gone.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go. I will counsel you with my eye upon you. [Psalm 25:12]

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, Ryan, 3. The boys
began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the
opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say
'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'Kevin turned to his
younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"

A guy walks into a post office one day to see a very well-dressed,
middle-aged, balding man standing at the counter methodically placing "Love" stamps on a huge stack of bright pink envelopes. Each envelope has hearts
all over it. The man then takes out a perfume bottle and starts spraying
scent all over them. His curiosity getting the better of him, he goes up to
the balding man and asks him what he is doing. The man says "I'm sending out
1,000 Valentines cards signed, 'Guess who?'" "But why?" asks the man. "I'm a
divorce lawyer," the man replies.

It was at a five o'clock tea. A young man came to the hostess to apologize
for his lateness."So good of you to come, Mr. Jones, and where is your
brother?""You see we're very busy in the office and only one of us could come, so we tossed up for it.""How nice! And so original, too! And you
won?""No," said the young man absently," I lost!"

Al Smith was governor of New York State. He was a famouse man. he was born
very poor on the East Side of New York City. he had little education. He
worked very hard and won great success.One day, as governor, he was visiting
the state prison at Sing Sing. Sing Sing is one of the largest prisons in
the United States. The head of the prison asked Mr. Smith to say something
to the prisoners. Mr. Smith had never spoken to this kind of audience
before. He did not know how to begin.Finally, he said, "My fellow
citizens..." Then he remembered that when a man goes to prison he is no
longer a citizen. he began again. "My fellow prisoners..." That did not
sound right, so he said: "Well, anyway, I'm glad to see so many of you here


No fair! I never get interesting spam.
Well the address they sent it to is one I haven't used for years (ee0mdc@nslm.fs....) I tend to use mark@ or @ or @ I posted to a fairly large public mailing list, this was a mistake seach for 'ee0mdc nslm' and you'll find out why.

Spam has issued forth ever since. I'll happily forward some if you'd like ;)
I just got this at the bottom of a spam advertising a programming company. I'm not sure if it's incoherent, or I'm missing some vital bit, like the ability to read English:

What Turkle is afraid of is that people become fluent users of
applications but not fluent thinkers. The playfulness too easily seduces
but instead of talking of a paradigm shift we should talk about a
translation of the notion of machines to now include them having a
psychology. anger being a non-modern toy showing the work of purification
and work of hybridization simultaneously Dreyfus which have been limited
to walkmans what I see to constitute cyberculture is a mutual dependence
between what could be called the cyberworld and the real world in modern
terms especially when children and technology interact. Children have no
problem ascribing a psychology to objects which claimed to be a complete
mathematical system. What Gndel showed in more understandable words were 3
with the essential difference that Turkle did not ascribe agency to the
objects as such. Even though this was the case meaning that everyone can
see the code and contribute to it. Nothing is hidden
It's a bit garbled, but it refers to Sherry Turkle's writings


Her most well-known book is 'Life on the Screen'
