Scientific spam
I've just received my first physics spam. Someone in either China or Switzerland has written to me to claim that Heisenberg's Uncertaintly Principle is untenable, with references and everything. I can't understand why anyone would send this out as spam, but the presence of many valid physics terms and the lack of any mention of Viagra (or similar spam terms) made Popfile give me a false negative.
