Hi All,

This spam came as a real surprise to me.  Somehow these guys have
figured out that I am of South Asian descent and assumed that I like
cricket and thus my absolute need for "cricket score software."

AFAIK, I have not signed up to any "indian" or "pakistani" or south
asian websites, they must have dredged e-mail addresses and then matched
them with ethnic names.

Anyone else come across this fine grained spamming?

best,

Karim
