Today’s spammers always find interesting questions to ask:
Are you currently accepting advertising on your website adblockplus.org?
And a disclaimer below:
I personally visited adblockplus.org on 11/20/2007.
Yeah, right. Maybe you even did, checked the page rank and went away to see the next site without waiting for the content to load. That’s why you sent me this question (which is obviously a mass mail), and why you used the address from whois info rather than the address on the very first page of adblockplus.org.
Given that USA use an opt-out system for mail, what is this lame disclaimer good for? Are there countries that allow mass-mailing if you have a “valid” explanation how you came in touch with the addressee?
