    That's funny; almost all of the spam that gets through for me has had "breaking news" as its subject line.

    Subject: Your name ... in WOOD!

    Is this a serious or just for fun list ;)? The "Donald Trump Wants You - Please Respond" one can be found nowhere on the internet, just in this AOL news item.

      Ultimate varsity CAPTCHA: Was the poorly drawn cartoon drawn by a human or computer? Extra credit: What was the original spam subject line?

      Experimental design vocabulary might include: This post-impressionist pontillism represents the desire to inform you that it likes trumpets."

    Uh, so last month when AOL gave me a nasty email telling me that my server was the source of 8% of their spam reports one day, that means that my server sent approximately 120 million emails? :-)

    (btw, the reason my server was sending spam was due to a hole in a client's contact form -- web hosting, its a dangerous business!)
