Doh!

Spammers are a clever bunch. Downright evil, but just as porn launched a thousand technological breakthroughs on the web, spammers are showing us how things can be done.
I received a <a href="http://www.tribolum.com/archives/2001/06/03/destination_singapore.php#comments">comment spam on one of my entries</a>. Nothing particularly new, you say. I have my comments emailed to me and when I saw that this user "had problems displaying my stylesheet on his Safari / OSX setup", I emailed back to clarify what problems.
Then I looked at the URL given. A life-insurance spam. I should have known better. A good mix of psychology and innovation can revive even the oldest and most archaic of technologies.
