Why put this in email body

So I got some spam today and for whatever reason decided to open it. The first part is obviously to get past filters

My guess would be that if I set up a filter to reject certain words, but accept others, the spammer is taking a chance that the words he’s sending would be on my “accept list”.

I’ve got a crappy ISP, and an even crappier spam filter. I specify “Viagra” and some of it’s more weller known variants as “reject”, but somehow if one slips the word ‘gradient’ in there, it gets through. :mad:

This’ll be the last time I accept any engineering spam, by God.

Say again?


The hottest thing in anti-spam filtering last year was (so called) Bayesian filters. By taking the words in an email and comparing them to an accumulated distribution of those words in spam and real email, a simple program can assign a spam/not spam quotient that is pretty reliable.

One of the first thing spammers did to get around this was to remove all text from their message. It would just contain 1+ gifs, which were in turn just their message converted into an image. That’s pretty easy to stop. (I read email in plain text only anyway, so I’d never see the content of their messages, no matter what.)

So they decided to attack “Bayesian” filters directly. They throw in a lot of words, different for each email, and try to avoid being categorized by word distribution. It seems to be working. This month. Next month, new anti-spam filter, new dodge around that.

Joey P, I really hope that the sample text is not the actual text of the spam message. A spam-bot roaming the net looking for copies of their spam text will easily identify that the email address that that text was sent to is “live”, and furthermore the owner is a “sucker”, i.e., someone who actually reads spam.

I believe this is the information you need
