Spam Filters

I have to admit that I get a kick out of going through our company’s spam filter. I mean, I have to do it of course to get the emails Ken sends, naturally, but I find the names that these people use to be quite funny. They must be generated by some bot that slaps random words together out of the dictionary. Here are a few from today’s spam:
Carpetbag S. Frailer
Retrieval P. Citronella
Whey H. Reprise
Tigress V. Apprenticing (Hmm, potential as a new hire, I think)
Disgorged K. Ditto
Flowing I. Autos
Vicki S. Conflagration (We’ll make sure to keep her away from Tigress)
Esthetics H. Theatre (Sounds like a pen name Sheila might use)
Dates P. Wrenches (I knew a girl like that in High School)
Jumper H. Deflates (obviously ‘splats’ as well)
Resistor S. Deferment
Weaponry V. Drones (I’ve often wondered that myself)
Applause T. Selflessness
Tone I. Busting (could be a rap mogul)
Nylon M. Estonian (sounds like an old drinking buddy of John’s)
Man, these things are a hoot.

    Heh. I’ve been meaning to put together a post from the subject lines of my spam.

    Half of them look like they could be Groucho Marx characters.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    There’s a bunch more I’ll put in the extended section. Feel free to list some of yours too, Ken!

  4. Ken Summers says:

    No good ones currently, I cleaned it out. I’ll check the trash when I get home.

  5. Gunslinger says:

    So far, all I’ve been getting lately is gibberish like 90n99_ and y4AtZ_.
    Tigress V. Apprenticing is my fave of the bunch. (I wonder if she has a sister?)

    The husband has been reading a weight-training book on periodization written by:
    Tudor K. Bompa
    I started laughing. I was like, “IS THAT NAME FOR REAL?!” I am pretty sure Tudor K. Bompa has sent all of us something that got automatically routed to the bulk mail folder, no?
    Evidently he’s a formidable trainer dude who helped the former Yugoslavia win world championships in ox-cart racing or strong-man-pulling-a-locomotive contests.

  7. It’s a veritable hotbed of multiculturalism, a mixing of traditions and bloodlines as old New England families chase after saucy Mexican ladies, resulting in children with names like Myles Santos, Pasquale Neely, Wilfred Espinosa, Alejandro Vaughn, and Francisco Draper… Yeh that’s it.

    The “Nylon Estonian?” That’s like a failed hockey nickname.

  9. Hahahaha, going through the Google searches people find us on, I got to revisit our Tylenol/renal failure comments and this SPAM subj line:

    Sildenafil treats impotence by helping you have an erection egg

    Gads, that’s a classic!
