Dueling Spam Filters: Spy vs Spy!
Here's something I find hilarious. Dueling spam filters between me and Preditors and Editors.

The following mail looked too much like spam and is being returned unread.

If it was not spam, please forward this mail to SpamReturn@tech-soft.com
with "ID=8502-529" in the Subject: line to redeliver this mail.

So sorry for the hassle, but you know how much spam there is, and this is
better than just dropping the mail entirely. :-) Thanks.

(If the recipient agrees this is legitimate, they can add your address
to their not-spam list so you won't have to do this again.)

This is regarding the following mail you sent:


Subject: Re: Preditors & Editors Readers' poll vote
