    The spam showing up here

    Level 7
      The subject lines reasonable subjects, clearly intended to entice us to
      open the message. Are the spam bots somehow just copying previous
      subject to achieve this?

          Well, it's not just the previous subject in the case of "Lock stage size to
          movie's stage". I posted that on the 9th (no responses, sadly), but the
          spam using that subject line appeared on the 22nd. (Odd that it only used
          half of my subject line, so it's not a direct copy.) Of course, I'm viewing
          it here in the NNTP version of the forum, so I see nothing but a bunch of
          messed up HTML tags and dirty words, rather than any actual spam. (Not that
          I'd be dumb enough to click on the link if there was one...) Fortunately,
          for now, it seems to be an isolated event - I didn't see any other
          duplicated or (partially-duplicated) subject lines when I sorted by subject.
