Tall ships (porthole)

(no subject)

Today's unusual spam is an email full of Amazon links. The links are all genuine un-booby-trapped, the from address looks sane, all the images come direct from Amazon, and it doesn't contain a malicious payload.

So how's it spam? Well, the links all include an affiliate code. So if I buy a book via one of those links, the owner of that code earns a commission. Cheeky.
