Spam

It's getting much easier to detect spam without the aid of spam detectors, and I don't even have to open the email to find out. The subject line of spam now seems to be comprised of nothing but gibberish or written by someone who knows English as a third language. I can see replacing an O with a zero to fool the spam detectors, or putting spaces between each letter, but lately, the subjects make no sense at all.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining. I think it's great that you can now spot spam easily. I'm just confused as to why they (the spam senders) would waste their time even sending out the emails in the first place, looking like they do?

I have also noticed that my spam levels have dropped from around 50-60 emails a day, down to around 30-40 emails a day. Again, I'm not complaining. :)
