Today's special is spam

A most amusing Nigerian spam arrived in my mailbox just now, apparently sent to an address at antipope.org from one in South Africa:

Subject: ACCEPT YOUR BLESSINGS
From: barrgeorgehallmark@tsamail.co.za

DEAR IN CHRIST,

CALVARY GREETINGS, IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

I AM BARRISTER GEORGE HALLMARK, A MEMBER OF VICTORIOUS ARMY MINISTRY INC.DURING A PRAYER AND FASTING SESSION IN MY MINISTRY I ASKED FROM OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO REDEEM MY LIFE AND PURIFY WHAT REMAINS OF MY WEALTH.

GOD DIVINELY REVEALED TO ME TO INVEST IN HIS KINGDOM THROUGH YOU AND YOUR MINISTRY /CHARITY ORGANIZATION. YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY CONTACT ME WITH MY E-MAIL-ADDRESS (barrg_hallmark@yahoo.co.uk)

THE WAY OUR LORD JESUS MINISTERED TO ME, THESE FUNDS WILL BE EXPANDED.

REMAIN BLESSED.
BARRISTER GEORGE HALLMARK.

I am tempted to mail back with his e-mail address, as requested.

Or forward it to Falwell and Robertson. I'm sure they would be interested in fleecing a fellow Christian in his time of pretend trouble.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
