The Mind of a Spam Filter
Our corporate spam filter trapped an email with this subject line: ‘[Company] has been analysed in a new global market report’.
The filter caught it for this reason: ‘Found word(s) anal anal in the subject’.
The email is indeed spam, but not for the stated reason.
OK, maybe I’m just a bit lacking in imagination.
Thanks to our spam filter, I will always think ‘anal’ whenever I see ‘analyse’ or ‘analysis’.
As if there aren’t enough distractions to deal with.
