G'day all

I'm sure most of you are well practised at scanning email titles for likely
spam.  I was caught yesterday by one with the heading "Sanderling".  It
turned out to be an ad for a CD full of spyware rather than an interesting
report on a delighful little wader.  How did they know this word would grab
my attention?
