Hey you, Kiri

You've been working so hard; you actually deserve a chic looking timekeeper to show off all your success.

But there are times when it is ok to indulge, to go nuts. Since you're a pal to me, I wanted to tell you about this outstanding deal that you should take advantage of. I know that you're often worried about money and have not grabbed anything for yourself, but these wrist wear are priced for we workers.

You're going to look and feel refreshed, and that makes me jubilant. Not only are the retail prices totally doable, but this worldweb store has real time tracking, as well.

See the text in red. I've notices stuff similar to this on certain websites (but there usually hidden by background colored text). It's also routinely in spam emails.

This is one of the more bizarre ones I've seen. I don't think it's anything malicious but more likely just to catch hits in searches, etc.

But does anyone have an explanation for this?

Yeh, it's a common thing I've noticed working in Policy Enforcement (Abuse). Like here is one that just happened to be on a message I am investigating:

It is not death, but dying, which is terrible.<br>
Laws and institutions, like clocks, must occasionally be cleaned, wound up, and set to true time.To establish yourself in the world a person must do all they can to appear already established.Simple solutions seldom are. It takes a very unusual mind to undertake analysis of the obvious.

I still haven't figured out Why the Hell they are being included in spam....... Spammers, what a strange group....

It's code for those of us who know what it means....

yeah, its stupid-- they think it will slip past the spam filters since it look slike an email... However, what idiots would buy products from screwed up emails with incorrect spelling everywhere?

Hash-busting. Anti-spam filters examine the contents of messages and filter them based on typical spam messages. So the spammers add random text, which they hope changes the spam message enough to get it by the filters.

It's to defeat spam filters that look at the probabilities of words. Typically Bayesian statistical methods are used by the filters. They spammers know that if they include enough random words then the probability databases that are created when you train the filter become less and less useful. Also, they use words that are not normally associated with spam so as to be less likely to be detected as spam.z

Cool. Sounds like a reasonable explanation.

Thanks.

that's what I had figured, that would explain the randomness.
