The spammy nerve!

Filed under: — adam @ 10:28 am

I’ve started receiving a number of emails like this. Unfortunately, there’s nothing in the message that looks like spam, so they’ve been getting through the filters.

I assume that the spam is entirely in the image, which I didn’t see, because I don’t use an html mailer for my main email. As far as I’m concerned, this is yet another reason NOT to use an html-capable email client.
