My favourite at the moment is the fact that my italian name (Sylvano 
Lucchetti) may well be the reason for the recent spike in italian 
spam/phishing/etc emails I've received... Fortunately email filtering tools 
tend to be multilingual, and pick up the lingo quick smart.

But it did make me wonder that perhaps it isn't, given I and many others were 
the target of the kangi character cons and the russian rouble rogues from a 
little while back.  

Anyone else getting italian spam?
