I’m getting a lot of these lately. What I don’t understand is why these phishing messages are so unsophisticated. If these spammers are already attacking my social network, why they don’t send me more relevant spam with more relevant/convincing landing pages. Click through to see the actual messages.

I’d almost forgotten about my catalog of favorite neologisms, but Dustin reminded me today to update. I’ve added: subtexting, peglegacy, flowbotomy, retracronym, redacronym, composterior, and funemployment. Pretty sweet all around.
