I Appear to be Deemworthy

By now most of the planet with access to the American TV show "Seinfeld" will have heard the term "sponge-worthy," a term that Elaine uses to rate her boyfriends. That word came to mind when I saw the following disclaimer on yet another mortgage spam:

Lastly, if uninterested please discard this email. It was only sent to a selected few that we felt deemworthy of this oppurtunity.

Ain't that a purty pitcher!

I did discard the email...after forwarding a copy to the FTC's spam refrigerator (spam@uce.gov). They've used chilled evidence to close down one big mortgage spammer already. I'm glad to give 'em some more to chew on to help them nab the next one. And the next one. And the next one.
