I just received a spam with the subject Tstone, Now You Can SLAM the Door on SPAM! The text went on to say The powerful, effective and intelligent anti-spam tool. It automatically cleans spam messages out of your mailbox before you receive or read them.

This is both brilliant and stupid. Everyone who receives this is a potential customer, because they don't already have spam filtering set up. But at the same time, the potential customers are unlikely to take up the offer, since they don't like getting spam, and hopefully have taken Roger Ebert's Boulder Pledge (a lovely meme from a past Conference on World Affairs).
