My pet peeve is:

"This message is sent in compliance of the new email bill section
301, Paragraph (a)(2)(C) of S. 1618.."

or, in other words:

"My government has given me permission to send you spam..."

Ouch! Nasty. I highly recommend getting yourself a (free) Deja News
account. You get a email address which you use for
postings (you can have it forward to your own address) and it
automatically filters spam for you. Very useful for posting to
