rear hans, germany becomes most
Like most people, I get a daily assortment of spam in my inbox. Get-rich-quick schemes, weight-loss products and, or course, porn. I take a variety of different tacks with my spam. I delete it. I fight it (with the excellent SpamCop), and I respond to it (read my letters to Moshood), but sometimes I just get puzzled by it…especially when it is in Dutch.
That’s right, I am now recieving Dutch spam. At least I think it’s Dutch. It might be German. I am similarly confused as to what the content is. I suspected porn, but I clicked on the link (for research purposes only) and it looks more like an ad for a Norweigan day spa than an ad for an online brothel in Amsterdam.
I examined the text of the message more closely and determined that, yep, it’s in another language. Undaunted, I cruised over to Altavista’s Babelfish, the online translator. They didn’t have a translator for Dutch to English, but they did have a German to English. I eagerly plugged in my spam. This is what I got:
There you have it. Plain as day. Sandra either wants to help me shed 15 pounds or she wants me to spank her with my lederhosen.
