I don't follow the spam/antispam news closely, and so I'm sure this tactic has been chronicled elsewhere. But what does interest me is the blunt way language has become a tool, in this case -- this case being the first few lines, reproduced below, from a "Stick plaster & grow small pe.nis" email I just received -- using rare words to skew the vocab-counting anti-spam-bots. Just that sentence, you know, just that sentence makes me happy. If you dont like this spam you dont like poetry, see?
