I think we need a spammer hall of fame. There's been some real winners posted here through the years, and I've just seen one that takes the cake. The following comment was posted on my blog:

Your site regarding %TITLE% looks very interesting to me. I found it doing a search for %KEYWORD%.

DUDE! Check your config file on your spam blast program before you hit send!

Sometimes those types of emails can be hilarious and can actually brighten up a busy day. I'm all for a hall of fame, here's one I just received, edited of course:

Hey Fatty,
Hope you are well.
I want to let you know that my amiga blah blah blah is running for school board of blah blah School District. She is looking for voting supporters and if you are so inclined, she could use donations of the monitary kind as well as a place to post her signs.
She is a good person who works hard on behalf of children and women. She also runs several non profit bilingual education programs in blah blah.
She is a lovely, smart, strong Chicana.
Have a wonderful day.
blah blah

Fatty? Uh, thanks.

I should also point out that the spam was sent to a rock music themed web site.

Chicana!?

I thought the Amiga was pretty much from the United Kingdom these days...
