Avoiding Spam Filters

I get a crapload of spam. My vaxcave account gets about 300 spam messages a day on average over the past few months. I’ve noticed that the 4 or 5 that don’t get caught by the spam filter have one thing in common. They all have paragraphs of text that could be misconstrued as genuine conversation between two human beings. I can see how a computer could make such a mistake, but some of these sentences are completely ridiculous. Here are some funny examples from Real Spam I’ve Received™:

  • “Those news announcers aren’t practicing shaving next to the police station right at this time.”
  • “plot Negroizations(?) stroke errant Floridians.”
  • “the me of brainstorms rise southward out of flatiron of slime”
  • “to catch alot instruments to all her statutory will healthiness enjoy”
  • “Why don’t you write anymore? Your mom misses you and is frightened that you may be hurt.”
