Purple Monkey Dishwasher.

I get at least 4 e-mails per day containing "stock tips n' gibberish." The format:

1. Gibberish
2. A copied/pasted picture of a stock that I HAVE TO BUY NOW.
3. More gibberish

An example of said gibberish:

"whodunit teakettle as cheese marquee in pocketful
covers, singsong a that align American Indian!!!
legalize to was maid of honor a acceptability"

…It goes on and on. Attention internet idiots: not only do I not want your BS stock tips, but how am I going to be more inclined to act on them when you surround them with nonsense, only further bolstering my opinion that you are a completely insane? What’s even more depressing is that these freaks probably make money off these e-mails. Er…

Amackster, those emails are completely fake, created by a computer program that randomly strings words together so that it doesn't get kicked out by your spam blocker. Most of them are simply tracking emails to see if you open them and then send you more if you do, or if you "unsubscribe" which actually just gets you targetted on their lists.

It's ironic that I am an embedded software engineer, yet know little to nothing about the modern computer scene. Thanks.
