     * Some add keywords, also called "spookwords", at the end of their Email, Usenet
       postings, or Webpages, in order to trigger the filters that searches for keyword. The
       purpose is to increase the amount of messages that must be further examined and thus
       increase the cost of monitoring. For example, the Emacs - editor, wellknown within the
       Unix community, is said to contain a built in command that always appends three lines
       of random spookwords at the end of each mail.
