Hrm, I think they're getting better at this...

Most of the little spam that makes it past spamassassin is pretty easy to spot just from the subject. Sometimes it's not so easy, and I lean towards checking it and wasting some time over automatically ditching it when it could be from someone I know who doesn't understand what spam looks like... Anyway, in cases where I actually look at it, I can usually tell immediately if it's spam from just skimming one line. It's usually so obviously fake that there's no question. But I think maybe they're getting better at writing these things so they at least look like they might be coming from a human and not a chimp at a keyboard.

Of course by the time I read the 2nd paragraph my spam-o-meter was pretty much pegged, but it's scary that it took that long to know.

Of course maybe recent events have clouded my judgement on this a bit... :)
