The Null Device

What does spam say about spammers' opinion of netizens? Well, according to the content of spam, most net users are short on cash, after a fast buck, grossly overweight, sexually insecure and obsessed with particularly depraved hardcore pornography. and are not unlikely to be aspiring spammers themselves. Oh, and needless to say, they're also very, very gullible. (via Techdirt)

Which brings to mind the following quote:

"Anything that might be of interest to Slitscan. Which is to say, Laney, anything that might be of interest to Slitscan's audience. Which is best visualized a vicious, lazy, profoundly ignorant, perpetually hungry organism craving the warm god-flesh of the anointed. Personally I like to imagine something the size of a baby hippo, the color of a week-old boiled potato, that lives by itself, in the dark, in a double-wide on the outskirts of Topeka. It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections." -- William Gibson, Idoru
