Spam and Comic Sans.

Posted by on March 20, 2013

Today, I received a spammy email from an unknown golf club. There was no obvious unsubscribe link or instructions, so I blindly replied with :

Hi,
Please remove 'xxxxxx' from your mailing list; we've no interest in golf…
Thanks,
David

 

They replied with :

REMOVED OK

But it was actually :

<FONT color=#0000ff size=4 face=”Comic Sans MS”>REMOVED OK</FONT>

i.e.

comic sans thank you
So I had to reply with :

<div style=”text-align: center;”><u style=”font-size: 144px; color: rgb(245, 236, 0); font-family: ‘Comic Sans MS’; “><b>Thank you!1!!</b></u></div>

Horrible yellow comic sans thing

 

I fear the intricacies of my reply were lost on them.
