This, believe it or not, was the title of a spam that made it through the Mozilla junk filter. Maybe we're converging on a new bargain with the spammers: if they provide an interesting enough title, we'll smile at their cleverness before hitting Delete.

To be candid, since the advent of decent filtering, on each and every one of my trips (once every two or three days) through the Junkmail folder, there's been at least one spam whose title was sufficiently well-crafted that I gave in and opened it. Inside: the same old crap. I still think we're winning.
