Here’s a word that is guaranteed to kill your email deliverability rate: debt.

There is so much spam out there talking about debt, that the spam filters are eating just about anything featuring the word, especially in the subject line.

In just the past eighteen hours, in just our own corner of the Internet, we’ve seen spam with the subject lines:

world bank det

More than thirty variations of spam with the word “debt”, and that’s just in the subject line.

Now, the glut of debt spam is almost certainly in response to the dire state of the U.S. econony, and world events, right now.

But what it means is that for now, at least, the word “debt” is one that you should strike from your email vocabulary.

By the way, I am off at another conference this week, and then running the Boulder Business Retreat next week, so our posting schedule may be somewhat reduced for the next week or so.

  1. Could this mean there is a lot of debt traffic at the moment due to the economy? And while you’re blocking a lot, there may be a heck of a lot more getting through?
