fun with spam

Long ago, I created the email address "oyvey (at) kvetch (dot) com" over at Kvetch! as the general email address. Seemed appropriate somehow. Little did I know it would lead me to someday getting spam with personalized subject lines: "Oyvey, do we have your money?"

» That's like the mail I get at my "spam" accounts that addresses me as "Freaky". As in:

"Freaky, we haven't heard from you lately" or
"College Scholarship for Freaky" or
"Freaky, would you like to earn more money?"

And I don't even remember ever listing my name as Freaky anyplace. It's all ... well ...

kinda freaky ...

it amuses me greatly when I receive spam that says "We have the right job for you, Lounge Lizard!"

  Gaming the system: How moderation tools can backfire
Sometimes all the widgets backfire, encouraging the very behavior they're designed to avert. The rules have a dangerous side-effect: they create a game.
