“spam loading, please wait”

I was sorting through the few spams that had gotten through my filters, when I spotted this phrase “Ad loading, please wait.” I didn’t, of course, and trashed it along with the others. But then I thought, not only did they have the audacity to send me spam, but wanted me to wait around for whatever picture they were loading to appear. I don’t think so.

Spam is getting worse, in that as soon as you get a filter going, the spammers figure out how to get past it, such as the latest random word thing. It has even been talked about in the daily comics, by of all strips, Mallard Fillmore. Can’t get more mainstream than that, can you?
