Best spam ever

by Suw on August 22, 2005

Couldn't help but open this one. Here's a snippet, with names removed to protect the quite probably guilty.

Request you denounce and prevent the XYZ Company impudently forcibly occupy intellectual property of Mr. ABC!
impudent XYZ CO.! impudent Mr CEO of XYZ! impudent! impudent!! exceeding impudence!!!
XYZ and CEO are transnational scoundre!
Does XYZ dare to deny openly? It does not dare, absolutely does not dare. With ironclad evidence before it, what qualification does it has to deny? There is a proverb saying “Qui non improbat, approvat”. Without open objection, XYZ is openly admitting itself to be a transnational scoundrel, trampling on the human and national dignity of creditors.
repudiate a debt + vilify = scoundrel
repudiate a debt + vilify + threaten = impudently forcibly occupy

I think I may use this as an email boilerplate for whipping up support on digital rights issues. Impudent! Impudent!! Exceeding impudence!!!

Impudent! Impudent!! Exceeding impudence!!!
For some reason I am reminded of the frantic modulated tones of Daleks.

Looks like it was translated with Babel fish.

That reminds me of the dozens of spams I've been receiving from someone claiming that Microsoft are guilty of spamming. These include multiple copies of what looks like a news article (though is of unknown authenticity), as everybody knows that the more copies of something you receive in your mail, the more credible it is.

?Qui non improbat, approvat?
For those of us who aren't Latin scholars, I offer a translation:
“If the glove doesn't fit, acquit.”

I reckon this is close to “spam art”. Maybe that's a new medium for artists. How to write spam that can amaze and make you laugh. This made soy milk come out my nose.

oh by the way, it was me… Cameron… who made that last comment… I can't be fagged logging in. Impudent login systems for comments.

Looks suspiciously like the emails I get from my boss on a Friday afternoon! Maybe I need to start treating them as spam.
Or get another job?
