Hysterical. Our tech columnist, Alexis Gutzman, just emailed me her own personal spam filter list. She's got her email set up so if any of the following terms appear, the email goes straight to her deleted items folder and she never even sees it. Alexis says, "I just kept pasting in subject lines..." whenever she gets spam.
Aside from being funny to skim - you'll recognize so many familiar spam lines - it's also a good list to match your own email campaign subject lines against. Are you inadvertantly using a subject line that looks like spam? That may hurt your results. Alexis' list (it's long):
