Le spam

Sometimes I look inside Baidu Mail spam folder to see if there’s anything useful got there by mistake (notifications from various shops with purchase confirmations end there quite often, to give one example). And there’s a weird tendency I’ve spotted recently.

In the last five days I’ve received 47 spam mails. 37 of them were in French. I’m used to receiving spam in various European languages (including but not limited to Bulgarian, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish) but before last year it was mostly in English. Additionally a good deal of them now is about some promotional actions from supermarket chains like Aldi, Carrefour or Lidl (and I’ve never considered either of them to be some luxury store).

What’s wrong with this world?
