You'd probably shake your head...

...at some of the Spam which gets deleted before you see it.  Most of it in Russian, even if the address suggests the UAE, or France, or even Mauritius.  A quick run through Google Translate has spotted some bizarre oddities amongst the usual enhancements and  dodgy medical supplies.

Liquid Wallpaper which promised 'seamless application'.  I immediately pictured the Mister Bean episode where he painted his flat with an open can of paint and a firework to disperse it evenly ;-)
