A vintage style of spam (edit)


Post Script: Reader Zzamboni points out the "I love you" worm from 2000 which I completely forgot about. Does anyone remember those out of the blue emails flooding your inbox? Luckily I did not click in 2000.  The 2011 version was just a harmless attachment free scramble of nonsense. I think it was about debt consolidation.

I've edited this post title from A new style of spam to A vintage style of spam. By the way Zzamboni has a cool site too.

I'm not sure if you are being sarcastic or not when you say "new"...

The "I love you" worm was one of the first mass-spreading worms back in 2000.
