Wise Guys

I was just reading an article on Time Goes By all about spam and its various iterations. And just as Ronni noted, I have also recently seen a difference in the form it takes. The good news is that Google Mail takes it out easily and with very few mistakes. The spammers are inserting a sentence or two of legitimate news in the beginning of the message in the hopes that you will think your spam blocker has made a mistake and you will open it. Clever.
