Donald Trump actually got more play than porn when it came to spam thisyear.

According to AOL's Third Annual Top 10 Spam List, those nasty -- andtireless -- spammers are getting craftier, more devious and moredangerous. And gone are the days when inboxes were filled withpornographic spam. In 2005, it was all about 'The Donald'.

  • The Penis Patch;

  • Get an Apple iPod Nano, PS3 or Xbox 360 for Free;
  • It's Lisa, I Must have Sent You the Wrong Site.
