[ale] curious spam
Might it be their thought process to overload our spambuster algorithms?
Some words are obviously from a dictionary while others are just random.
If you mark that e-mail as spam (which you would probably do) then the
words will be placed into your spam dictionary for recognition. This is
to create a huge database over time and has to slow down the process of spam
Does anyone know what kind of database the various
spambusters use? Might it just be a flat file? If so, I understand what
accomplishing since speed varies directly with size.
