At least, I'm assuming "adding a raisin" is some idiomatic expression in the spammer's own language. Or perhaps a translation of a translation of an idiom from someone else's language. It sure doesn't make any sense in English by the time he gets done with it:

Add a raisin to your style by wearing Hermes cufflinks. If you buy accessories on our website, you will save money.

Those obviously come from their upbringing. That's what they do all the time themselves after all. In virtual ways, but still. :sad3:
