New kinds of spam

I got the following bizarre email, subject-line “scienceblogs.com/appliedstatistics/”:

Hi,

After looking at your website, it is clear that you share the same concerns about Infections as we do here at Infection.org. Our website is dedicated to sharing the various up to date information regarding Infection, and we would love to share it to you and your readers.

I would like to discuss possible partnership opportunities with you. Please contact me if you are interested. Thank you.

Just the “Assistant Editor,” huh? I’m assuming that when Instapundit and Daily Kos got this email, it came directly from the top. On the other hand, the real nobody-blogs probably get a request from the Deputy Assistant Editor or an intern or someone like that. . . .

P.S. Spam is a kind of infection, so in this way I guess the message makes a certain kind of sense.

    From the title of the Infection.org website (i.e. the bit displayed at the top of the browser window):
    "Infection, Bacterial Infections, Organic Solutions, Yeats Infections"

    YEATS infections?!? Are we experiencing a pandemic of Irish poetry?
