Subliminal Spam

By Deane Barker on September 6, 2006

Subliminal advertising in spam?: I followed this link, and I think I bought 100 shares.

The spam contains an animated GIF with four frames. One of the frames (which contains the actual spam message) remains visible for 17 seconds. The other three frames are displayed for 10ms or 40ms, and each of those contains a little random noise and the word BUY in random positions.
