Trends in spam

Most of the spam I am seeing at the moment seems to have (untrue) inflammatory politcal content for a subject line (e.g. "Bush detains Obama under terrorism legislation!", "China bans black athletes from Olympics!").

I would like to think this is, in its own twisted way, saying encouraging things about levels of political engagement in our supposedly apathetic times, but I suspect it's just that the filters have got too good at noticing that that's not really a picture of Anna Kournikova in the attachments.
