Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, SpammerX: "Baldly Written?" Nope, Just Badly Written

That eagerness persisted only into the second chapter—the self-professed spammer ... seems unable to mate subject and verb number, use apostophes or adverbs rationally, or spot abject incoherence in his own writing.

So what you're saying is ... the spammer's book reads like the spammer's e-mails?

OT, but:

I often go for walks with friends of mine, stopping off at every ATM on the way... By the end of the night I am carrying at least $10,000.00 in $20.00 bills.

That's crap - your daily withdrawal limit isn't per individual ATM, it's for your account as a whole, unless he's got some magic account with no limits (or multiple accounts, but why bother hitting different ATMs in that case).

Pathological liar, as well, I suspect.

The deal with the ATMs was that he was supposedly withdrawing from multiple accounts using info he had gleaned from spamming. He had to do it at different ATMs, though, to hide the source from his friends.

I admit, when I read this particular statement, I thought, "SURE! I believe you!" [end sarcasm]

The level of writing was atrocious. I suspect the editor (if there was one) was simply overwhelmed with the technical jargon-laden prose, and gave up correcting all but the most egregious errors.

How much would you love to know the real identity of SpammerX?
