WTF is up with this new SPAM!!!!!

Has anyone got spam like this recently?!?!....WTF!!!!!!! It looks like the new trend in SPAM is for them to copy parts from books and include them in the email in order to try and fool junk mail filters. It doesn't work. At first I was thinking WTF is up with this but now it's obvious, that's exactly what they're doing. I just got this spam:

How they could ever imagine that we could take this nonsense seriously is way beyond me.
It's like an email straight out of bizarro-land. Does everyone else get this????
Would anyone, EVER, click on their link and send them your credit card details?! WTF!!!!

The spammers are ever more cunning in getting past your spam-blocking algorithms. They are trying to confuse your spam detector into letting this crap past.

Why can't they just all be courteous to humanity and drop dead?

You gotta love the ones that sound like they were cut from a romance novel. I read a few lines of one just because it was a really amusing excerpt.

Not only is this spam but isn't it also unlicensed reprinting if they are not paying for the material?

I seem to remember that hormel actually was suing somebody about that, but the judge threw it out of court. I'd have to look it up, and right now, I'm too damn lazy.

A bit unrelated, but I'll use this opportunity to recommend mailwasher. I use it, and will soon be paying for it - I receive so little spam becasue of it, I'm eternally grateful to them! It lets you bounce emails back so you pretend your email address doesn't exist. Very useful!
And no, I'm not part of the company or anything, I just do think it's a very cool program.

Bouncebacks are generally considered worthless, since (a) most of the send addresses are faked anyway, and (b) there's no additional cost to the sender if the message bounces. And, in the case of email viruses, bouncebacks just increase the load on the mail servers for no good reason.
