2.10 Think Like a Spammer

Spammers are not creatures apart from the rest of humanity. They are human, just like you and us, and are motivated just the same, to make a reasonable living.

Imagine yourself out of work, desperate and needing to make a buck. All you have is your computer, lots of computer savvy, and a money-making scam in mind. What would you do to send spam email? What would you do that is different from what spammers are doing now? How would you try to foil current spam detection software?

By trying to outspam the spammers, you will be better prepared to fight them when they later mature to your level of thinking.
