Whenever a Travellerspoint member reports something on the site as spam, it doesn’t take long before one of us lucky guys on the TP payroll gets the task of playing detective, sheriff and judge all at once. It’s fun in a power-crazy kind of way, and it keeps Travellerspoint clean from those peculiar people known as spammers. Yesterday though, I got a spam report that was a little out of the ordinary...
spammer has reported the following message from spammer as spam.
Subject: Re: can you help in desert of morocco
how are you ??
i'm very happy to send you this message if you interesting or you need some informations about morocco.
i'm [name witheld] from desert of morocco, southesat of morocco, i try to ogranise small trips by 4x4 or camels to visit and descovre all derictions of morocco , exactly desert like sand , gravures , oasis .....
and i try to help our tourisms i desert if they have some problem.
too, i organize bivouac to spend nieghts winder tents and descouvre all traditions of nomads.
i hope that my typical organize is interesting you , can you contact me in [phone number]
Ok, so lets work out exactly what's going on here... First of all, spammer (not his real username) sent a message to himself. Then, in a sudden rush of honesty/foolishness, he reported his own message as spam!
That’s funny enough, but I really had to laugh when I read the actual message. I was especially fond of this bit:
i try to help our tourism i desert if they have some problem.
p.s. If you enjoyed this post, it'd be cool if you took a minute to Digg it!
