Unintended consequences
         


A friend who works for a video hosting site called my attention to an interesting phenomenon: one of their user accounts was displaying multiple pages of classic Viagra spams, with all the usual graphics. The graphic appeared as the main item in each post (the hosting service in question accepts still images as well as video), with the text of the spam — including hashbuster text — in the description field. The post titles consisted of classic spam subject lines, such as the recently popular ‘French rock star Bertrand Cantat released from prison’ and others of that kind.
