Batch Spam

I think I'm detecting a pattern to the spam I receive.

Yesterday, every one of the spam emails in my junk folders was an ad for a Viagra substitute. They actually appeared to be from different sources and not one of those blocks of emails from minor variations of the same return address.

Today (and this is where it gets creepy) the four spam emails I got were all from different dating and match-making services. :eek:

Geez, I didn't even get my Viagra yet!
Yesterday I got 80 identical emails (except for the automatically altered "from" addresses) for tranquilizers. I was having a tense day, but they didn't have to rub it in.

I wonder if spam can be used as an oracle? This morning I had three from online casinos, maybe I should buy a lottery ticket.
