Slipping Porn through the backdoor

Don't worry - this is just a comment on an interesting piece of porn email that slipped through [barely] our spam-checkers (they decided it was some sort of lunchmeat, but possibly pork-and-egg roll rather than spam) I should repeat, no animals were offended during the production of this blog entry, well, except for Brian the cockroach who I accidently crushed when I pushed my chair back...

I find it interesting how the software we have installed here determines "Spam" - I often have to go through the "Spam of the day" list and say "no, that's no spam... that's not spam... and that's not spam" to the numerous technology mailing lists to which I subscribe. Which is why I always find it interesting when something that is very obviously [to my human eyes] spam slips through. Here's a case in point, with a theory that follows.

Note that links have been removed, and words censored where appropriate. [or should that be "where inappropriate" ?]


Subject: dirty redhair having get one's leg over with girls, guys and vibrators.

How about your good self?

Alice is a shy girl who has never [censored] black johnny before.
Grammar, which can govern even Kings.

[URI REMOVED]

She came in and grabbed a hold of that black [censored] and sat her [censored] on top of it and rode it like a huge chocolate johnny!

White people really deal more with God and black people with Jesus.

That little white chick didn't want to stop, she was getting herself off over and over again! In the end she got some chocolate milk spewed on her pretty face!

There is no great future for any people whose faith has burned out.Never forget what you need to remember.


I find it interesting that this message sounds like it's coming from a dissociative disorder suffering author. One minute they're theorising on intellectual and religious questions, the next they're describing sordid sexual activity. Are they really quite bonkers? Or is this just a scheme to bypass spam checkers. While most likely the latter, I prefer to think that there's a pychopath out there who really wants to talk about things like "God and Jesus and racial interpretations of the bible" but maybe is also a frustrated erotic novel author who just can't get no satisfaction.

Maybe they just have a bad case of tourette's syndrome?

Okay, the scores on the doors. Based on all scoring schemes used by the spam checker, this would need to be a 3.5 or above to be classed as spam. It received a 3.2 . So very almost, and yet not quite. I do find it interesting that it scored points for "possible porn" spam, but missed out on "possible religious spam" - In fact, saying that, the amount of religious spam I've ever received [even pre-spamchecker days] was incredibly low - non existant I'd hasten to guess. Seeing as one of the "things" indicated by, particularly the bible but possibly others, is for us to go out and preach and convert others to our cause - how come we haven't been bombarded with hundreds of messages "convert to the one true God" ?

Hmm.
The word of God is not considered to be spam. It must be as said, and not altered to fit whatever point you want to make at a set time or you will be forced to sit in the "naughty corner" in heaven until it is deemed that you have really learnt your lesson... So no putting "this may be spam, click here to release" or other meaningful indicators on it. Are Spam checker writers God fearing? Would God use the internet?

I think that's firmly set the monkey loose in the cathouse.
