Spam: Gary Schrock on the SpamAssassin-talk notes:
… that study that’s being talked about in an email doesn’t exist. There’s something in the Trends in Cognitive Science journal about it, that discusses why that email is actually as readable as it is. I’d try to pass on the knowledge, but while I may work in a lab that does psycholinguistics, that doesn’t mean I understand it enough to pass it on. But the short story is there’s no such research at Cambridge.
(The irony here is that this was being talked about in the lab where I work earlier today, and when I mentioned this email someone in the lab was able to hand me to article from Trends. Unfortunately the journal is only available online with subscription.)
