What are those random word e-mails?

  1. Jul 17, 2004 #1
    Do any of you receive emails composed of seemingly random word lists, e. g.,

    "spiteful, congress, omnipresent, culinary, loggia," etc.

    What meaning might these messages have for an average Internut like me?

    No, sorry. They have no meaning.

    It's just a spammer's tactic to try to evade screening software. My ISP for my personal e-mail has a button I can click to report spam. Amazingly I never got any spam until a few months ago.
