Annoying Spam contains quote from Cryptonomicon


Annoying Spam contains quote from Cryptonomicon
Originally uploaded by Major Clanger.

Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson is one of my favorate books. Imagine my surprise when I got some spam which contained a large quote from the book, I guess to fool spam filters. That is doubly evil, especially as the story of the book is about using noise to hide the signal. Not funny.

(If you click on the picture, the text at the bottom crossed out is in fact a chunk of the book).

That is pretty messed up. What'll they think of next?
