I got a lovely spam Kosmail about an hour ago:

The spammers are getting more creative. I like it. It's more personal than posting a thousand hit-and-run comments in dead diaries. Plus, I'm totally going to start ending my emails with "Be blessed in the name of our Lord." It's so much easier than trying to figure out if I should put "Thanks" or "Sincerely" or "Regards," especially here in Alabama.

Since this evades Kosbot (I assume?), if you get something like this, just tick the little box next to the "mark as spam" button and submit it to the Great Orange Overlords for further review and processing. Banhammers should be sent out within 2 to 4 business days in the order in which requests were received.

Oh, and don't send an email to the address unless you want to use a throwaway email account to screw with them. Spammers send out this kind of plea spam en masse to see what email addresses are active, and if they get a response, they'll know it's live and bombard it with more spam.

Be blessed in the name of our Lord.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
