Spammers' names

That weird spammers technique of creating a bunch of fake names to fool the Bayesian filters leads to some strange name combinations in my inbox... today I got an e-mail from the funniest name I've seen yet, "Comeliness A. Tampon". Heh. Amazing how the human mind immediately recognises that no one in their right mind would ever say "Hi, I'm Comely Tampon", but it takes computers forever to understand that. Here's a screen cap of my inbox...

There're a few other amusing names: Experiencing A. Pit (Are you Experiencing A Pit? Maybe you need anti-depressants!) and Warner B. Revitaliz (Don't you Warner B. Revitalized?). Good for a laugh.
