Big brother

Recently I was sent an e-mail by Giles of Jacobs Room. My Hotmail account automatically stuck his message into my "spam" folder. I replied to Giles and speculated that perhaps the term "libertarian" or "bottle" or even "1952 Committee" had triggered off the spam alert.

Giles thinks it was more likely to have been his use of the salutation "Sir", as in "Dear Sir, I am the Finance Minister of Britain Nigeria and have an offer that you can't refuse..."
