Odd spam

  • 27th May, 2005 at 11:23 PM

I'm working on packaging up some software for Debian today, as this is something that doesn't take a lot of brainpower but does take a lot of patience. Perfect for when your brain is running a little on the slow side.

I'm going through my e-mail and I see:

->  384 ND  May 26 Cory Oleary      (0.9K) Enlarge your package today

And it takes me a while for me to figure that this is spam, and not an instruction to add more files to the Debian package. Which, I suppose, I ought to do. It could certainly use pkg-config goodness.

Reminds me of my .spamassassin/user_prefs entry:

body LOCAL_LOSE_INCHES /lose\s.*\sinches/i
score LOCAL_LOSE_INCHES 3.00
describe LOCAL_LOSE_INCHES I like my inches

body LOCAL_ADD_INCHES /add\s.*\sinches/i
score LOCAL_ADD_INCHES 3.00
describe LOCAL_ADD_INCHES I do not need any more inches

It is almost certain, then, that this reply will be caught by your filter.

Ah-HA! it is *you* with the pre tags! They mess up my aggregator page.

Oh! I thought that something wrapped at 72 characters would be narrow enough for anybody.

I suppose I can reformat with   instead.
