First rate spam subject

I have to scan the Junk Mail folder periodically because our spam filter sometimes catches student e-mail from off-campus accounts, particularly when they put their name in the subject line. [Why the heck do students do that, anyway? Don't they realize their name is on the e-mail and the course number is what matters to us?]

I love the ones that seem to be produced by a 'bot from a dictionary of technical and common terms. Got a classic this weekend ...

"And ferromagnetism do baptism"

  • I could almost see a spin lattice aligned at the font.

Last week the winner was "He jacobian of obtrusion"
  • There would be some strange transformation behind that one.
