From the spam folder: ЕԀitоrial Bοаrԁ Μҽmƅҽrs

Academic spam can be a good laugh! This morning I stumbled across this gem: academic spammers using strategies (trying) to beat the spam filters — must be a truly legitimate thing!

Yes, we have all the usual nonsense in the mail, but also the replacement of letters with others that look similar: Editorial Board Members versus ЕԀitоrial Bοаrԁ Μҽmƅҽrs…

Yes, I’m definitely going to “contrіЬute” to my community and will instantly join the editorial board of a journal nobody has ever heard of (nope, I’m not going to give you the satisfaction of mentioning you!), because they engage in “peer rҽviҽѡ”! Must be a good thing⸮

I’m sorry to tell you, though, that this mail was already in the spam folder when I found it… it’s not working.
